What is it?
"Movies by the River" is a FREE outdoor summer movie series each summer in downtown Haverhill, MA. A variety of new releases and family favorites are shown on Thursday nights throughout July and August. All movies are PG or G rated.
Who can come?
Anyone! This movie series is designed to provide free entertainment in Haverhill and to bring the community together. So invite your friends, bring some chairs and snacks, and make an evening of it!
When/where is it?
Movies will be held in the parking lot between Rent-a-Center and Haverhill Bank on Merrimack Street in Downtown Haverhill, MA! Pre-movie activities start at 7pm, and the movies are shown as soon as it is dark enough (usually by 8:15PM)!
How can I get involved?

We are looking for sponsors to contribute toward the cost of the series, volunteer groups to pick up trash and welcome attendees, and volunteers to help publicize the series.
