The schedule for the downtown Albany outdoor movies/food trucks series -- Bites Camera Action -- is out.
You might remember this is the series for which the Downtown Albany BID asked people for their votes to narrow down the slate for the series in Tricentennial Park. And here it is:
movie title | live music act
July 10: Back to the Future | The Graham Tichy Trio
July 17: Jurassic Park | Kimono Dragons
July 24: Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone | The Useless Cans
July 31: La La Land | Bryan Brundige & Crick Diefendorf
August 7: The Goonies | DJ Mercy
August 14: Star Wars: The Force Awakens | Victory Soul Orchestra
Those dates are all Mondays. Food and live music starts each night from 5-8 pm. Movies start at 8:30 pm. Admission is free.
Tricentennial Park is the park on Broadway across from Kiernan Plaza/the old train station.
