Ever wish you could travel back to the golden age of Hollywood? Well, for handful of hours this summer at Market Square Park, you just might be able to. 

Twice a month through this August, Houstonians can enjoy a selection of classic films from the '50s and '60s, as part of Houston Downtown Management District's Movies at Market Square Park. The free series, which kicked off last week with the screening of Roman Holiday, features a variety of genres ranging from sweeping romances to Hitchcock thrillers to saucy comedies. 

Social distancing guidelines have been relaxed, but attendees still must wear masks at all times except when eating or drinking (guests are welcome to bring takeout, so support those local restaurants, folks), maintain six feet of physical distance from other groups in attendance, and wash and sanitize their hands frequently using the sanitation stations located around the park.

So, grab those blankets and lawn chairs and pop that buttery popcorn for an evening of cinematic escape. 

Through August. Free. Market Square Park, 301 Milam St. More info and showtimes at marketsquarepark.com. Check out the full schedule below.
