GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The annual summer film series hosted by Downtown Grand Rapids is making a move from Ah-Nab-Awen Park to 555 Monroe Avenue NW in Grand Rapids.

“Ah-Nab-Awen Park capably hosted Movies for 5 years,” said DGRI Chief Outcomes Officer Andy Guy. “However the City’s acquisition of this sizeable riverfront property in Monroe North gives us a new place to gather and relax along the Grand River. Hosting the event at this new location also offers multiple advantages that will enhance an up-and-coming neighborhood and the overall outdoor movie-going experience.”
