The State Theatre’s popular Free Summer Movies Series is back for another year, following very successful 2016 run. The New Jersey Stage reported that the New Brunswick theatre is proud to be bringing it back for more family-friendly movies this summer, which will give young people a chance to break out of summertime boredom with great films.
The two sponsors of the event this year are the Boraie Development and the Provident Bank Foundation. The sponsorship is what makes it possible to provide these free public screenings at the historic State Theatre, which has been in business since 1921.
In an article on NJ Biz, this summer, there are six movies which will be showcased every Wednesday at 10:30am and 7:00pm. First up are Frozen on July 12, then E.T. on July 19, followed by Despicable Me 2 July 26, Babe, August 2, Monsters University on August 9, and finally Aladdin on August 16.
Tickets are free of charge, so parents and kids can come together and watch these classic and beloved family films without having to worry about the cost. Last year, the program was very popular with families, but also summer camps and other kid-friendly summer programs. For the State Theatre, the Free Summer Movie Program gives them a chance to connect with a new generation living near the historic theater.
Hiam Boraie, VP of Boraie Development, expressed his thanks for being able to add to the line-up of free movies. Through the generosity of Boraie Development and Provident Bank, the State Theatre hopes to bring in 7,500 movie goers to the summer program this year. It is part of a broader partnership between the theater and community leaders to attract more low-income and busy families, who may not always be able to afford a trip to the movies.

Their sponsorship of the State Theatre’s Free Summer Movie Program comes as part of a larger cooperative effort to revitalize the city as it becomes more family-oriented and settled. They have played a key role in redeveloping the downtown area with new luxury housing like a recently-built 17-story residential high-rise near the train station with direct access to New York.
