Films like “Napoleon Dynamite”, “Office Space” and “Die Hard” will screen at Peacock Alley (south of Travis Park) in October, November and December.
SAN ANTONIO – The video above is for a Centro SA sponsored mural project, visible from Peacock Alley (to the west).
If you missed it during the summer – taking advantage of the unique opportunity to watch a free movie under the charming fairy lights of San Antonio’s Peacock Alley – don’t worry. There are three chances to do this before the end of the year, starting this week.
On Friday, “Napoleon Dynamite” will be shown at the location nestled between two old buildings, just one block south of Travis Park. The movie starts at 7:30 p.m. and to make things even more fun for fans of the 2004 film, event organizers are hoping to have little ones on hand for the first 50 entrants to keep them laughing. In addition, Gatorade will also be distributed to those first 50 people.
Peacock Alley films are made possible through the San Antonio Downtown Development and Operations Department (CCDO) and Centro San Antonio.
You are welcome to grab lawn chairs and there will also be themed food and drinks for sale at each screening.
The events are open to the public. And if you can’t come on Friday, put these next two dates on your calendar:
Friday November 12: Office space
Friday December 10: Die Hard
Peacock Alley has hosted thousands of people with events featuring local artists, businesses and musicians who have used the space to connect audiences. It was also the site where people had fun watching it snow in 2019 (before the real winter storm of 2020).
“This space has come to represent the scope of our work downtown. From the lane artwork of local artist “Scotch!” ”At events that directly benefit hyper-local artists and small businesses, the alley embodies our commitment to creating a more welcoming, beautiful, fun and prosperous downtown in the spirit of San Antonio”, Elizabeth “Liz Burt, director of urban activation for Centro + Joue, said.
