Ripley’s Movies by the Bay

Ripley's Movie Nights

Oh, St. Augustine, life with you just gets better and better!!

Ripley’s sponsors family movies by the bay every summer & this year’s lineup is pretty darn cool. See the list of movies below!

Every Wednesday night at 8:30, bring a blanket to sit on and enjoy a free evening of family fun. You’ll find the screen on the Intracoastal just past the Bridge of Lions {behind Bayfront Mini Golf}.  Arrive early to grab a spot while it’s still light! BYO chairs, do not BYO alcohol.  

Ripley’s keeps making this event better!! This year, the Red Trains offer free shuttles to the marina starting at 7:30 at the stop on the loop by the Visitor Information Center in front of the parking garage. The shuttle will loop continuously until 8:30 and return after the movie.

Did I mention Ripley’s does this for FREE!?! They give back to St. Augustine in so many ways- Ripley’s deserves our thanks! {Thank you, Ripley’s!} As I said, shows start at 8:30, which is a little late to bring a picnic dinner, but there are always snacks for sale at the putt-putt concession stand.

See ya there!
