Exciting Bites Camera Action update: based on Governor Cuomo's June 15 announcement and updated New York State COVID-19 safety guidance, pre-registration requirements have been removed for Bites Camera Action. We recommend signing up for the event through Eventbrite in order to receive updates via email, but walk-ins will now be permitted and there will be no assigned pod seating. Seating will be on a first-come first-served basis and attendance based on lawn capacity.
The Downtown Albany Business Improvement District (BID) and the State University of New York (SUNY) are proud to present the return of the Bites Camera Action free outdoor summer movie series, kicking off June 18 and running for six consecutive Friday evenings through July 23. This year’s series will take place on the lawn at the H. Carl McCall State University of New York Administration Building, the iconic former D&H Railroad Headquarters building at 353 Broadway in downtown Albany.
Join us on July 30 (rescheduled from July 2) for a special 25th anniversary screening of the 1996 hit film Independence Day. Seating for the event will open at 7:30, with the movie beginning at dusk or approximately 8:30 PM.
Announcements regarding event postponements for inclement weather will be made here, via the Downtown Albany BID social media channels, as well as on downtownalbany.org/bca. Sign up via Eventbrite and you will also receive an email update if the event is being postponed.
