Race Street Pier free summer ‘Awesome Fest’ film series begins tonight

    Take in a screening under the stars tonight on the Race Street Pier.

    The Awesome Fest, a roaming film series that plays in the city’s most unique venues and non-traditional spaces has partnered with the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation to present a weekly series of free outdoor movie screenings at the Race Street Pier.

    Every Saturday at nightfall (around 8 p.m.) throughout the summer, catch viewings of independent films from major festivals like Sundance and SXSW on a brand new state-of-the-art, 30-foot outdoor airscreen.

    Tonight, Saturday, June 9 at 8 p.m., kick off the series with No Room for Rock Stars, a documentary of the true stories of modern era rock and roll, shot over 300 hours during the 2010 Vans Warped Tour.

    According to the show’s producers No Room for Rock Stars is “story-telling at its finest” and “a historical retrospective or concert film this is not.”
