Free Movie Night on Bridge Street
The Bridge Street Merchants is hosting a free movie night on Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 7:00pm. Bring your own blanket and/or chairs and learn what really happened to Sleeping Beauty when you watch Disney’s Maleficent. Popcorn, candy and drinks will be available for purchase with some of the proceeds going to Anna Maria Island Community Center. No rain date is scheduled.
“We had a free movie night several years ago and it was quite a success so we decided it would be great to do it again. If this is well received then we will do another one in the fall on a weekend night,” said Angela Rodocker, President of the Bridge Street Merchants. Disney’s Maleficent is the story behind the famous Sleeping Beauty. “We picked Maleficent because we believe that it would appeal to all ages and would give local and visiting families something fun to do,” said Jake Spooner, Treasurer for the Bridge Street Merchants.
The Bridge Street Merchants, a 501c6, supports all the merchants on Bridge Street for year-round shopping, dining and entertainment on the south end of the Anna Maria Island. Other merchant events such as the Bridge Street Sunday Market Food Challenges and Christmas on Bridge Street support various local charities.
For Thursday, consider taking the free island trolley right to Bridge Street. Car parking options include: the city lot behind the Bridge Street Bistro, up and down Bridge Street including by the city pier and along the beach just south of Bridge Street.
