The first showing was this week -- it was "Happy Feet 2" -- and it attracted nearly 1,000 movie watchers.
Pat Nowak, Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce executive director, said Main Street is closed from Maplewood Avenue to Monroe Street for the event. Also featured are elephant ears, funnel cakes, hot dogs, iced drinks, and popcorn.
The goal is to bring families downtown, Ms. Nowak said, and also to celebrate the end of the school year for students.
“The quality of a city is predicated on how active downtown is,” she said, adding that last year’s event was a success.
The movie each night of the showing starts at 8 p.m. on one screen and a second screen is added as it gets darker.
A band will provide entertainment for children.
Scheduled to end around 10 p.m., the event is also sponsored by Mercy St. Anne Hospital.
The next Taking It to the Streets event will be on July 12.
