St. Croix 100 - #89 Movie at the FortLooking for something to do here on St. Croix that is fun and free?  Try St. Croix Movies at the Fort in Christiansted!  The last Saturday of each month at 7pm St. Croix Movies at the Fort, in conjunction with the National Park Service, presents a free movie on the lawn in front of Fort Christiansvaern.   I attended this event for the first time not knowing much about it, let alone what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised!

Parking was easy since the free Christiansted National Historic Site Parking Lot at Fort Christiansvaern stays open from 6:30pm-9:00pm for this movie night event.  Volunteers set up a large inflatable screen and a sound system in the park area by the gazebo in front of the fort.  Both the sound and picture quality were great for an outdoor venue like the park.  Those attending the flick laid out blankets or setup beach chairs, some even brought folding card tables with chairs.  Many movie goers took advantage of the venue by bringing their own picnic dinner or snacks to enjoy during the show.  Others supported local restaurants by picking up dinner to go and bringing it along.  Most of the crowd also brought bottles of wine, cocktails, soda, or bottled water to enjoy.  It made a great date night for me and my husband!  The weather was beautiful, and as dusk fell over Christiansted Harbor and Fort Christiansvaern we spread out the tapas we had prepared and sipped our glasses of wine.  Once the sun was down, the movie started and the crowd quieted and enjoyed the film.

Movies at the Fort

Since this event is supported by the National Park Service, movie goers are asked to pack up their trash and food waste when leaving.  This is a ‘pack it in, pack it out’ event.  To have the opportunity to watch a movie under the stars at the historic Fort Christiansvaern is very special.  Next time you are looking for something different to do in Christiansted, or you want something fun to do with the family, take in a movie at the fort!
