PROVIDENCE, RI – The Roger Williams Park Conservancy is presenting free, family-friendly films on Friday evenings at sunset on the Roger Williams Park Boathouse Lawn, across from the Carousel Village. Presented in partnership with the Providence Children’s Film Festival, all events start with a selection of short films and will last approximately two hours. Film screenings follow Food Truck Fridays at the Carousel Village, allowing audiences to enjoy a night out at Roger Williams Park for dinner and a movie.
