What’s better than an open-air movie night in the summer? A free one hosted just blocks away from fun nightlife, restaurants and swanky activities around every corner, maybe?
Yes, we’ve described the best version of a summer movie night and it actually happens to be occurring on The Logan Hotel’s courtyard in Philadelphia, this Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m.
The first event of its kind for the hotel, The Logan is going all-out with a showing of The Goonies to kick off the fall season in the city. Bring a blanket and bundle up on the lawn, enjoying complimentary popcorn, pillows and a throwback film.
The venue puts you a quick walk from the Barnes Foundation, Rittenhouse Square, the Franklin Institute and even the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Liberty Bell — so you can get your arts and culture in before settling down for a movie at the hotel.
Sip happy hour drinks when doors open at 7 p.m., and munch on candy and popcorn before the film begins at nightfall.
Spend the night and enjoy all the City of Brotherly Love has to offer by day, but definitely make a point to spend some time on the hotel’s Assembly Rooftop — one of the best in the city.
