La Peg to kick off summer movie nights under the Ben Franklin Bridge

Movies will air in themed groups all summer long

La Peg outside M. Edlow/Visit Philadelphia™

A contemporary brasserie set in the Fringe Arts building, chef Peter Woolsey’s La Peg boasts industrial-chic glamour and an unparalleled view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

On Wednesdays, starting June 22, La Peg at FringeArts will screen movies outdoor in the beer garden. The Louis Bluver Outdoor Movie Series, which is a free event, will run through Sept. 7.

A seafood shack pop-up will be open in the beer garden for attendees to grab a meal, or all are welcome to head inside La Peg before or after the movie for a full dinner.

Each screening begins at 8:30 p.m., with seating in the beer garden available on a first-come, first-served basis. The movie schedule for the summer is broken down into themes.
