moonlight movies

Mt. Airy CDC and our collaborators ROOT Ritual Dance Movement and Outlaw Arts are hosting a single Moonlight Movie for the 2023 season, and it’s a special one: Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised). This Oscar-winning film, directed by Questlove, brings to light the Harlem Cultural Festival of 1969 and the musicians that made it a landmark event. Part music documentary, part historical record, the film uses never-before-seen footage to illuminate this epic event of Black history, culture and fashion that took place just 100 miles from Woodstock. Temple Health – Chestnut Hill Hospital is our generous sponsor for this free event.

With performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more, this film will have you singing and dancing in your seat!

The movie begins at sunset (it needs to be dark to see the screen!), so start time is approximately 8:30pm. We invite the community to join us at 7:30pm for musical performances and other activities before the show. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for the latest updates.

This is a family-friendly event open to everyone, but please note that the film is rated PG-13 and may not be suitable for younger residents.

Bring a blanket or a lawn chair, and let’s make a night of it in the park!
