Screen on the Green: Jaws

August 21 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Screen on the Green is back for a spatially distanced 12th season! Pack up a chair or blanket, grab a mask, and join the Short North Civic Association on the softball field in Goodale Park (located at the corner of Goodale & Dennison) for a free movie under the stars, projected on a giant inflatable screen with cinema-quality sound.

The original summer blockbuster, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 tale of a Great White that terrorizes a small resort town and the three men who hunt it is both a masterful suspense classic and a timely reminder of the perils of placing profit over safety. Showtime is at sunset (@8:20).

Enjoy the film with a fish boat or other tasty treat from Queen’s Table and gourmet ice pops from J-Pops. We’ll also have free popcorn available while supplies last, courtesy of Fibonacci’s Pizzeria.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, guidelines will be in place this year to help ensure a safe screening experience for all. We’ll also be selling limited edition fabric masks handmade by Columbus designer Esther Myong Hall, with prints to match each film selection. Details:

• Spatial distancing will be required. The field will be marked at 10′ intervals to help you find a good spot.
• Mask wearing is encouraged at all times & masks will be required when you’re not seated.
• A table will be set up near the food area for hand sanitizing and mask sales. You can also pick up small trash bags there for your food containers, etc. We won’t have communal trash containers and ask guests to take their trash with them when they leave the park.
• We strongly encourage pre-order of food and masks to help our food vendor prepare and to limit cash and card transactions on site. Details on how to order in advance with be shared shortly.

Limited free parking is available in an adjacent lot, metered & app parking is available on adjacent streets, and the Convention Center garage is also in easy walking distance.

Screen on the Green will be back in September for the final film of the season: Edward Scissorhands on Friday, Sept. 18.
