Dark – Movie

Searching for Sugarman is an Academy Award winning film about a little-known Detroit musician whose haunting voice and poetic lyrics made some believe he would be the next Dylan. Instead, he became a South African folk hero while being virtually unknown in the the USA. You will leave wanting the soundtrack!

Come early & enjoy the band before the movie! The evening’s music isAcho Brother – They blend Latin fusion with acoustic rock. A WMNF favorite, they have been named Creative Loafing’s Best of Bay several times and have played large festivals including Tropical Heatwave & Gasparilla Music Festival.

Purchase food & drink from our vendors or bring your own picnic. Jump for Kids FL will be serving up cold beer from Cage Brewing

Bring a blanket or low seat (some folding chairs available). Secure on-site bicycle valet parking with the St. Pete Bike Co-Op.
