INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Sunset Cinema on the Canal is returning this summer.

Beginning in May Indy Film Fest and Downtown Indy Inc. will offer free movie showings once a month on the canal.

“After a great first year, we wanted to bring back another in-Canal experience,” said Bob Schultz, senior vice president of marketing, communication and events for Downtown Indy, Inc. “Thanks to Indy Film Fest, we know this will be a unique event and fun for all attendees.”

A large movie screen will be located at the north end of the Canal near Admiral Spruance Basin on 11th Street.

"Movie-goers are invited to bring blankets/chairs and picnics to enjoy the movies on the grassy areas." For those who want to enjoy the movies while in the water, individuals 21 and older can pay $20 for a floating innertube (to keep) to watch the movie while in the Canal. The $20 comes with two Sun King beers. Pre-registration for this is required (to register click on the hyperlink below for whichever movie you plan to attend).
