Films in Van Vorst 2015

Summer is fast approaching and we are super excited about our 11th season!

That’s right, 11 years a team of dedicated volunteers from the Van Vorst Neighborhood have brought you movies for free under the stars in our beautiful park.

This year, with a GENEROUS donation from our friends at DIXON LEASING:a subsidiary of DIXON ADVISORY we are purchasing a new projector and a new screen.  It’s been 10 years and the technology has changed so much that we felt it was a good time to invest in new equipment and Dixon stepped right up and volunteered to help us out!!

We also need to thank our friends  at Silverman: Building Neighborhoods, PSE&G,  Jersey City Medical Center/Barnabas Health, The Van Vorst Park Association & The Friends of Van Vorst Park and the City Of Jersey City for their generosity.  Without them, we would have a great screen & projector but no films…. we truly appreciate every dollar donated!!

If you’ve been coming to our movies you know the deal. We are on every other Wednesday, this year starting June 10th.  The Wednesdays in between are our “rain dates”.  We typically wait till the very last minute to cancel–we HATE to postpone…but the weather sometimes just doesn’t cooperate.  We will post any cancellations on Facebook, or via Twitter @VVPAJC.  We also use JC List and this website to get the word out. Remember, bring a chair, bring a friend, bring your dinner~the movie an popcorn are on us.

Stay tuned to hear about our exciting season!  And in the meantime, if you want to learn how to get involved email us at vvpanews@gmail.com. We can always use volunteers !
