Make some popcorn! It’s time for the Saint Louis Art Museum’s Art Hill Film Series to start in Forest Park.
Metro makes it easy for you to have some Friday night fun, eat some food, and take in a movie under the stars in Forest Park this summer. The #3 Forest Park Trolley will provide free, special trips after 7 p.m. on four Friday evenings – July 14, July 21, July 28 and August 4— between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and the Saint Louis Art Museum for the Art Hill Film Series. The first movie in the lineup is “Titanic” on July 14.
Movie buffs can park at any one of the 21 free Metro Park-Ride lots in Missouri and Illinois, take MetroLink to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station, and then hop on the trolley for a free ride to Art Hill or you could take #1 Gold Line MetroBus route or the #90 Hampton MetroBus route to the station to catch the special #3 Forest Park Trolley service. If you live near the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station, you may prefer to walk or cycle there to connect with the trolley.
On July 14, July 21, July 28 and August 4, the special #3 Forest Park Trolley service will operate between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and the Art Museum every 30 minutes between 7:20 p.m. and 9 p.m. For your return trip, it will operate every 30 minutes from the Art Museum to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station starting at 9:56 p.m. on July 14, 9:50 p.m. on July 21, and 10 p.m. on July 28 and August 4.
Due to the length of the first film “Titanic” on July 14, MetroLink passengers will need to return to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station on the trolley by 12:12 a.m. to catch the last MetroLink train of the night. Check the MetroBus schedule to make sure you allow enough time to catch the last buses from the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station.
It isn’t every day you get the chance to watch a movie while sitting on Art Hill, between the Grand Basin and Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park. The movies start at 9 p.m., and seating space for blankets and lawn chairs is available on a first come, first served basis. The movie lineup this year is:
Friday, July 14 – Titanic
