A sure sign of August? The Waterfront Movie Series is Back! Held on Wednesday Nights (August 7, 14 & 21), this FREE event makes watching a movie a community event. Nothing is better on a warm summer night than grabbing a blanket, some delicious food to go from Carry Out Cafe for an outside movie on Newburyport’s waterfront!
Don’t run around trying to gather dinner items for your picnic. One stop at Carry Out Cafe before the film will cover all your picnic food. We have a wide range of sandwiches, salads, cold plates and side dishes to satisfy everyone. And cookies and whoopies too!
Movies will be shown on a 40-foot inflatable screen with an HD Blue Ray Projector and BOSE professional sound system. Tell your friends and family and join in the family fun.
The August 7th show features the funny and heart-warming film Despicable Me. In case you haven’t seen it yet, here is a synopsis:
In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru, planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, the moon!) Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
