Join us for the inaugural Screen on the Green 2019! We will show Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on June 6, 2019, 7 PM, at the Curley K-8 athletic field. Join us for a fantastic movie and a great time! Free and open to the public. Many thanks to our June 2019 sponsor: Sazama Real Estate.
The warmer weather means there are a lot more enjoyable outdoor activities such as the First Thursday Scavenger Hunts and Screen on the Green movies. Participants in the Jamaica Plain Centre/South Main Street's First Thursday Scavenger Hunts can use StriveOn -- JP's Mobile App -- for the Scavenger Hunt, and throughout the year to find special deals, events, discounts, and more at local businesses and shops. Each Scavenger Hunt features treats and discounts for users who find the hidden locations. Upcoming dates and themes for the Scavenger Hunt are:
June 6 - RELAX
Aug 1 - ENJOY
Sept 5 - FOCUS
Oct 3 - REMEMBER
Nov 7 - FEED
There will not be a First Thursday Scavenger Hunt in July due to Independence Day. This summer Jamaica Plain Centre/South Main Street's Screen on the Green will be at two rotating locations.
Jamaica Plain Centre/South Main Streets' First Thursday ArtWalk will include a new wrinkle to the popular event. A new interactive mobile app is being used to offer scavenger hunts, quizzes and will "ping" you when you walk past a participating business. During the First Thursday ArtWalk businesses open up (often after regular hours), inviting everyone to check out local art on display. The artists are often onsite and happy to speak with you about their work, which is often for sale. Businesses sometimes offer light appetizers and drinks.
