Fountain Square Movies Start Saturday

They return this weekend in connection with Reds related events:

... seven “Reds Hot Weekend” celebrations from May to September. The first “Reds Hot Weekend” is THIS WEEKEND, May 16-18 when the Cincinnati Reds take on the Cleveland Indians at Great American Ball Park.

“Reds Hot Weekends” begin this Friday night with live music by Lo-fi, a local cover band playing funk and rock classics, at 5 p.m. on Fountain Square. Local Reds fans and visitors in town for the games can meet, mingle and gear up for the series before heading down to the ballpark for the 7:10 p.m. game.

And if you don’t have a ticket for Saturday’s game, kick back on the Square all afternoon, listening to music and watching the 3:55 p.m. game on the giant video board. Then stick around for “Movie Night.” At 7:30 p.m. every Saturday through Labor Day, the Square’s popular “Movie Night” returns starting this Saturday with two baseball-themed movies “Sandlot” and “The Natural.” (Feel free to bring chairs, blankets, pillows and snacks for Movie Nights, but leave pets and alcoholic beverages at home. Beer, soft drinks and snacks will be sold on the Square.)

Then on Sunday “Reds Hot Weekends” continue on the Square following the 1:15 p.m. Cleveland Indians series finale. After the game, the Reds Rover vehicle will be parked on the Square along with the United Dairy Farmer old fashioned ice cream truck. Reds mascot Gapper will be on hand to help hand out free UDF ice cream from about 4:30-5:30 p.m.

“Reds Hot Weekends” include the following series:

May 30-June 1 -vs- Atlanta Braves
June 13-15 -vs- Boston Red Sox
July 18-20 -vs- New York Mets
July 25-27 -vs- Colorado Rockies
August 15-17 -vs- St. Louis Cardinals
Sept. 5-7 -vs- Chicago Cubs

I just googled Gapper to see what it was... (I'm not much of a baseball fan)
