2nd Street Flicks Under the Bridge July 3rd
It’s summer, and that means the weather is perfect for sitting outdoors and watching movies. The Louisville Film Society is sponsoring 2nd Street Flicks under the Bridge, and on July 3 they’re showing the perfect flick to put you in a patriotic spirit.
Under the Bridge
“Stripes,” starring Bill Murray and Harold Ramis, begins at 7 pm sharp on July 3. It’s a funny film about two friends who join the army. Some of the humor can be a little racy, so parents may want to pre-screen the film before bringing along the kids. The movie was actually shot in Kentucky, and several scenes were filmed under the 2nd Street Bridge itself. You can’t watch many movies in the same place where they were made, especially if you live in Louisville!
The 2nd Street bridge goes over the Ohio River. Drive toward the river to find the bridge. You’ll located 2nd street between 3rd and 4th Streets. You’ll be right in the heart of downtown Louisville during this event and right in the middle of the action. But nearby, you’ll find plenty of communities and family homes.
One of the nearest neighborhoods to the bridge is Smoketown, just one mile south of the downtown area. This community, also known as Frogtown, was named for the many brick-making kilns that once existed in the area. In the late '90s and early 2000, the area was in the decline, but thanks to a new grant a revitalization project has brought new life (and several brand-new homes) to the community.
Drive a little farther away and you’ll find communities like Germantown and the Highlands, both just a few miles away from downtown Louisville. No matter where you live in the city, 2nd Street Flicks under the bridge is open to everyone. So drop by on July 3, and put yourself in a patriotic mood.
