Voice Your Vote! Open Space People’s Choice


Last Year’s People’s Choice Winner: STAR WARS!

Grab some friends and a blanket, because our magical cinema under the stars will return once again to the Open Space this summer. And it wouldn’t be our free nightly movie series without our annual People’s Choice Night — the night we allow you, the people, to decide what’s shown on our 65-foot inflatable screen set against the beautiful Traverse City bayfront. 

Everyone has a favorite movie, a movie they return to again and again, year after year. Well, imagine getting to experience it like you’ve never seen it before! 

So let your voice be heard and help us pick what the community will come together to watch on Friday, July 31. This year’s choices include: “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,” “The Breakfast Club,” “The Hunger Games,” “Poltergeist” (1982), “Say Anything…,” and “Zoolander.” Voters can also write in their own pick. 

Voting Has Now Closed. Stay Tuned for the Results!

The People’s Choice movie, along with all films to be shown at this year’s festival, will be announced on Friday, June 26. Open Space Park, on the corner of Union St. and Grandview Parkway, is one of Traverse City’s most beautiful and treasured public gathering spaces, an ideal venue to enjoy a free outdoor movie as well as the very best summertime fun Northern Michigan has to offer.
