PELHAM, NY — August 9, 2017 — Come say goodbye to summer and hello to friends and neighbors at The Picture House’s sixth annual Picnic in the Park event on Saturday, September 16th from 6:00 to 11:00 p.m. The night will kick off in the beautifully renovated 1921 Picture House with cocktails, popcorn, and an advance screening of one of the most buzzed-about movies of the fall, the biopic Battle of the Sexes. After the film, guests will head to the park directly across the street where they will enjoy a gourmet picnic dinner followed by dancing under the stars.
“We are thrilled that Picnic in the Park has become a hallmark event that so many from Pelham and the surrounding communities look forward to as they usher in the start of the school year – and a new season of movies and events at TPH,” said Laura deBuys, Executive Director of The Picture House.
For the second year in a row, a small but highly-curated online auction will be open for guests and for those who cannot attend the event. Items that will be available for bidding include a weekend-long say at a beautifully appointed ski condo at Okemo Mountain Resort in Vermont, a named seat in The Picture House, and more.
Picnic in the Park tickets start at $145/person until August 15th when the base ticket price increases to $160/person. Tickets are available to purchase at www.thepicturehouse.org. Various sponsorship levels are available and there is still time for businesses and individuals to support the event by purchasing an ad in the Picnic in the Park virtual journal which will be shown on-screen prior to the film and featured on The Picture House website.
