Insider's Tips:

Specially designated radio station sponsored nights (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) mean special prizes and giveaways, and the opportunity to meet on-air personalities. Flagstaff Hill in Schenley Park also offers a great concert series on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:00 p.m., prior to the movie's start at dusk (see schedule below for bands/performers).

Inclement weather may cause movie cancellations. For cancellation info, tune into KDKA or visit the Pittsburgh CitiParks website.
