September Nights

September 3–25, 2020

This is no ordinary year, but that’s not stopping us from safely celebrating all that late summer has to offer. In the month of September, we’re excited to experience music and film together with live streamed concerts and free outdoor film screenings. We’re proud to continue our partnerships with the Roxbury International Film Festival and Boston Latino International Film Festival, and to support local musicians at a time when there are so few opportunities to enjoy live performances.


Film screenings take place on the Huntington Avenue Lawn near the corner of Huntington Avenue and Forsyth Way and adhere to strict social distancing guidelines so you can gather safely and have fun. Free tickets are required and are limited availability due to limited capacity. Limit of two tickets per order. Reserve yours online beginning at 10 am on the Monday before each event.


Tune in on for free concert livestreams.
