Indianapolis Water Canal


Indy Film Fest and Downtown Indy, Inc. have partnered to bring you Sunset Cinema on the Canal. Everyone is invited to watch FREE outdoor movies along the Canal on Thursday May 16th, June 20th, July 18th, and August 22nd. A large movie screen will be located on the north end of the Canal near the Admiral Spruance Basin (11th Street).

Free seating on the grassy areas surrounding the canal basin will open at 7:00 PM. Movie-goers are invited to bring blankets, chairs, and picnics to enjoy during the movies. In addition, food and soft drinks will be available to purchase near Canal 337 by Thomas Caterers.

Movie fans age 21 and over looking for a one-of-a-kind, in-water experience can purchase a VIP In-Water Admission. For $20, you will receive access to the canal (you will get wet!), an inner tube to float in (and keep!), and a Sun King beer to enjoy during the movie. Inner tubes, provided by 9 on Canal Apartments, are limited. Pre-registration is required.

Movies will begin after sundown at 9:00 PM.
