Palace Theatre Announces Official Reopening with Free Summer Movie Series for Children

The Palace Theatre’s Summer in the City Movie Series, presented by SEFCU will return to offer seven free, family-friendly movies to children and families from neighborhoods around the Palace in downtown Albany. The movie series provides children with the opportunity to enjoy the excitement and beauty of the historic Palace Theatre, while offering fun, safe and positive opportunities to become engaged in the arts. 

Summer in the City is one of several free and low-cost arts and educational programs offered by the Palace that positively impacts local children and families each year.

“As the Board Chair of the Palace Theatre, I am extremely proud of our Summer In The City movie series. It’s one of the important ways our theatre reaches out to underserved families in our community, and it’s a great way for a whole new generation of young people to become more familiar with the beautiful Palace. We thank SEFCU for sharing our vision about this summer program, and for their generous support!” - Stephen P. Baboulis, Chairman, PPAC Board of Directors. 

“SEFCU is thrilled to serve as this year’s Presenting Sponsor of the Palace Theatre’s Summer in the City family movie series. We have supported this wonderful program since 2016 to ensure that children and families in the City of Albany have the opportunity to beat the heat while also sparking the imagination as they enjoy fun, family-friendly movies in this Albany landmark,” said SEFCU President and CEO Michael Castellana. “Going to the movies is always a special treat, especially this year as it represents a return to normalcy after the pandemic paused so many of our favorite summer activities. After last year’s intermission, this year, I hope everyone enjoys the show.” 

For each show, doors open at Noon. Movies begin at 1 p.m. Free popcorn is provided to children 12 and under.
