You’re Invited!

Bike-In Movie

6:00 – 9:30 PM

Christian Herter Park Amphitheater

Join us at Herter Park’s newly renovated outdoor amphitheater on the banks of the Charles River in Allston/Brighton for a screening of Grecia White’s new Boston-based documentary, Women Who Bike at Night, as well as Gabriel Méndez Castaño short film, Mensajeros de Boston*. Both films will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the creators.

The film screenings will be preceded by an outdoor celebration featuring A Trike Called Funk (Boston’s own pop-up party tricycle, spinning songs to create a dance party for YOU!) and pop-up bike repair provided by REI. The event will also include a special “unveiling” of Herter Park’s new bike racks.

This is a free event. Bike convoys will be converging at Herter Park from all corners of Greater Boston (part of what makes it a “bike-in” movie!). Click the link below to learn more:

*Please note that our second film, Mensajeros de Boston, contains some colorful language that may not be appropriate for children. That screening will be begin at 9:00 PM after a brief intermission, providing folks an opportunity to depart if desired.

Questions? Contact Ryan Waldron, Events Manager.
