Wondering what to do on Friday night? Well, wonder no more! DCR and WBZ News Radio 1030 have teamed up to bring a free series of family-friendly movies to DCR’s Hatch Shell on the Esplanade. Every Friday in August, a movie will start at sundown on a screen at the Hatch Shell. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, pack a picnic, and enjoy these Free Friday Flicks under the stars. Since June 18, movies have included “Grease”, “Wizard of Oz”, "E.T." and “Star Trek.”

For more information including movie schedule and weather cancellation information, call 617-787-7200 or visit WBZ’s website. Hope to see everyone some Friday night soon out along the Charles River!

There are also free movies offered at other locations around Boston and on Salisbury Beach this month.
