Flicks on the Bricks in Portland

by Michael BeenerJuly 15, 2016

There’s nothing like gathering together in an open public space and watching a full-length feature film.  On Friday evenings in July and August, you can do just that in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square, with Flicks on the Bricks presented by SmartPark.  The Square will be turned transformed into Portland’s largest outdoor movie theater for the entire community to enjoy!  The series kicks-off on July 22 and runs through August 19 on Friday evenings accompanied by live pre-movie entertainment provided by Portland’s 101.9 Kink.  The music starts off at 7:00 p.m. and the movie follows at dusk.  Admission is completely free and movie-goers are encouraged to make the Square their “Living Room” by bringing pillows, cushions, bean bags or low back chairs.
