Catch a Movie at Reading Terminal Market Tonight

Tonight at 7 p.m., Reading Terminal Market is kicking off their “Movies at the Market” series. Once a month, anyone looking to watch a free flick can head over to the market to do just that. The film of choice tonight is “Chef,” a comedy/drama about a chef who quits his job at a prestigious LA restaurant and decides to open a food truck with his ex-wife, son, and best friend.

It’s a better movie than the description makes it sound.

It wouldn’t be a true night at the market without good food, so before and during the movie Bassetts Ice Cream, Flying Monkey Bakery, Hershel’s East Side Deli, Jonathan Best, Old City Coffee, Pennsylvania General Store, Spataro’s Cheesesteaks, and The Original Turkey will all be open.

There will also be a happy hour at Molly Malloy’s from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. where you can get your drink on before the movie starts.

If you can’t make tonight’s film, you can catch the next one on February 11th, where they will play “An Affair to Remember” (just in time for Valentine’s Day). On March 17th they’ll play the musical “Little Shop of Horrors;” April 17th will be “National Treasure,” (which, as you recall, was set in Philadelphia), and then the culinary drama “Burnt,” featuring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, will be on May 12th.

That’s quite a line-up. To RSVP to tonight’s film (as well as any of the others), you can register online here.
