Street Movies! Presented by PNC Arts Alive

Gather the neighbors and bring your lawn chairs. Scribe Video Center ‘s, Street Movies!, presented by PNC Arts Alive, returns in August with it’s 14th season featuring outdoor screenings of short independent films and videos in communities around Philadelphia and the tri-state area. Inspired by the tradition of outdoor screenings at African film festivals and Philadelphia ‘s street theater movement of the 1960s, Scribe created Street Movies!


Now a summer tradition across the city, neighbors gather, lawn chairs and blankets in hand, to enjoy drive-ins without cars. This year’s exciting line-up of animated, documentary, experimental and youth-produced films focuses on themes of environmental justice, the lives of new immigrants, finding good healthy foods, and honoring urban green spaces. The outdoor screenings will be preceded by live performances by some of Philadelphia ‘s most talented performing artists including internationally acclaimed poets Sonia Sanchez and Ursula Rucker.


Live performances will start at 7:45PM. All screenings will start at 8:30PM and are open to the public. Please visit our website for a full schedule of films, performances and updates. Also visit Street Movies! on twitter @scribevideo for updates and our Scribe’s Street Movies Presented by PNC Arts Alive facebook page.


PNC Arts Alive is a five-year, $5 million investment from The PNC Foundation that supports visual and performing arts groups with the goal of increasing arts access and engagement.


“The PNC Foundation has a long history of providing grants to non-profit organizations that strengthen and enrich the lives of our neighbors,” said Bill Mills, regional president of PNC for Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey . “We understand the valuable return that investing in the arts can deliver. Today more than ever, the businesses we attract, the jobs we create and the visitors who extend their stay are drawn by what the Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey region has to offer.”
