Flock to Movies in the Park: “The Birds” is September Film

ROCHESTER, Minn.—"The Birds” is the last feature film of the Movies in the Park season presented by the Rochester Downtown Alliance and Premier Banks Rochester September 21 at Historic Central Park.

"The Birds" Movie

It all starts in a San Francisco pet store. Socialite Melanie Daniels is purposefully mistaken for a store assistant by Mitch Brenner, who is looking to buy love birds for his sister’s birthday. Charmed and annoyed, Melanie decides to purchase the birds and to drive them to Mitch’s home in Bodega Bay. What transpires next is something no one in this quaint coastal town can fathom: an increasing number of attacking birds. This film is rated PG-13; parental discretion is advised.

Pre-Show Activities and Food

Infuzn knows how to feed the hungry horde! Try a variety of scrumptious eats like the potato masala wrap, paneer in pineapple sauce wrap, pulled pork nachos made with Jackfruit, and a mango smoothie. As a final treat to the Movies in the Park season, Coldstone Creamery is dishing up its famous silky-smooth ice cream onsite. The fun, the food and themed activities provided by Charter House start at 7 p.m., with the movie at 9 p.m. Movies in the Park is a free event and is open to the public. Blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged for this outdoor movie experience in downtown Rochester.
