“In the Heights” and “Dune” Will be Shown as Part of the “On the Canals” Summer Excursions Program

The New York State Canal Corporation is hosting free outdoor movie nights along the Erie Canal in Herkimer. In partnership with LI Movie Nights and Gems Along the Mohawk, this first-of-its-kind canalside event will offer free screenings of top box office hits, including In the Heights (September 3) and Dune (September 10), as part of the “On the Canals” excursions program. “On the Canals” offers free, year-round activities along Upstate New York’s canal corridor and is supporting small businesses and local communities through recreational tourism.

All screenings begin at dusk, and local vendors will be on-site offering food and beverages, for sale, prior to showtime.

Attendees are encouraged to register for the film of their choice by visiting the “On the Canals” website.
