Flicks and Foodies under the Gateway Arch
Food, film and fun on Arch grounds this summer

WHAT:  On Saturday, May 24 and Saturday, June 21, the National Park Service invites visitors to a night of music, food and film under the Gateway Arch at “Flicks and Foodies.” This free outdoor summer movie night features classic film favorites screening underneath a classic American landmark, offering spectacular views of downtown St. Louis and a unique motion-picture viewing experience.

Starting at 7 pm, visitors can gather on the Arch grounds, and enjoy live music and food trucks. At sunset, an action-packed classic western (rated PG) will show underneath the Arch on a giant projection screen. Please visit Jefferson National Expansion Memorial’s Facebook page for movie titles.

“Flicks and Foodies is the first event of its kind to happen at the Arch, and we are thrilled to bring free public movie nights to the park grounds,” said Ann Honious, Chief, Museum Services and Interpretation, Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. “With Flicks and Foodies, our visitors have yet another way to experience the Gateway Arch and learn about the American West.”

Parking is available at the Gateway Arch Parking Garage, located at 200 Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis. Visitors are encouraged to check before heading to the event for the most up-to-date information on road detours and construction surrounding the Arch grounds.
