MOVIES FROM THE BALCONY: WEST SIDE STORY (2021)
Steven Spielberg’s 2021 adaptation of West Side story offers patrons a way to kick off parade weekend with a musical celebration of Puerto Rican culture. The film puts a contemporary spin on the musical, a genre of film with deep roots in American cinema. Featuring a pre-show performance by storyteller, musician, and educator David Gonzalez.
Movies from the Balcony: A Free Series at UPAC is a NEW social gathering & movie series at UPAC on that celebrates the magic and wonder of the movies. Featuring bold visions, bright colors and beautiful frames on the Hudson Valley’s largest screen on Thursdays and Fridays throughout 2023!
A happy hour precedes each film starting at 6pm in our upstairs balcony lounge, with half price beer and wine, free snacks and soda, pre-movie happenings with local artists and artisans, and more. Don’t miss the opportunity to mingle with likeminded moviegoers, family, and friends, and enjoy some of cinema’s most creative offerings perched high up in the UPAC Mezzanine! (Accessible seating also available in the orchestra section.)
Made possible in part with support from Herzog’s, Marshall & Sterling, and the federal American Rescue Plan Act funds awarded to the City of Kingston by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
