Movies in the Park July Preview: Crazy Rich Asians

No need to hop on a plane: your passport to fun is at Movies in the Park July 20 at Castle Community (note relocation because of storms/rain July 20) in downtown Rochester! The next flick in the lineup presented by Premier Banks is Crazy Rich Asians! Here's a high-class preview of the hilarious romantic comedy night!

About the Movie Voted No. 1 in Our Poll!

A New York best-selling book is now a major motion picture movie! Crazy Rich Asians follows Rachel Chu on her visit to Singapore with longtime boyfriend, Nick Young, for his best friend's wedding. What she doesn't know is he comes from a millionaire family and is regarded as Singapore's most eligible bachelor. Will Nick's disapproving mother finally warm to Rachel or will she and the other jealous socialites have their way? This film is rated PG-13.

Go Crazy Over the Food & Drink

Cameo at the Castle Restaurant is taking your taste buds overseas for Asian fare! On the menu are spring rolls, chopped salad bowls, and gin-based cocktail Singapore Sling. Café Steam is serving up Thai coffee, a take on ca phe sua da (a dessert-like coffee beverage of espresso and sweetened condensed milk brewed with spices). Coldstone Creamery will provide a sweet-treat finish to your meal with its signature ice cream. All food and beverages are available for purchase.

Rich in Activities

Thanks to our activities partner Charter House, themed crafts are part of the event! Create an intricate design on a Chinese lantern or beautify a decorative box. Try your hand at an ancient art form at the Rochester Public Library's origami station! A variety of lawn games will also be onsite for your entertainment!

Popcorn, A Movie Delicacy

Before you settle in for the movie, grab a snack of Carroll’s Corn popcorn for purchase. The buttery goodness that's a longtime companion of movies awaits you at Movies in the Park!
