Basic Information;


Tamanend Park is located at 1255 Second Street Pike in Southampton, Pennsylvania (at the intersection of Maple Avenue halfway between Street and Bristol Roads).

Show times take place at dusk, which starts around 9:00pm but as the summer wanes, the times become earlier as the sun sets earlier, ending at around 6:00 pm.

The trails are illuminated with solar lights so you can feel confident that the lights will lead you to The Meadow Amphitheatre. If you arrive earlier you can check out the stage before it gets dark. This might help you feel better about where the films are shown because they are not right next to the parking areas. You will need to walk a little ways into the park. It is very enchanting and a lot of fun!

I suggest you get there a half an hour before dusk/dark. You are welcome to picnic in the Meadow while we set up for the film and you may end up getting a performance from the stage.

We have a concession stand where we sell canned soda, bagged chips, pretzels and popcorn. This year we tried ice pops and candy which worked well. For next season we hope to have purchased a popcorn machine.

We also sell insect repellent in case you forget to bring some, but the insects are really not that bad because we have tiki torches with citronella which seems to work pretty well.

We have a raffle which you can view on the IMS Virtual Studio and there is a countdown clock for the next film at that site also.

There are more pictures of the set-up for Cinema Under the Stars and you can also view a slide show presentation which will help you to locate the stage or find directions. To see this slide show go to;

The IMS Virtual Studio or The Shakespearean Journal.

How you can help

We are presenting these film free to the public, but the films are not free and the cost of promoting and managing these films is also not free.  So if you would like to see these film continue in our community, you can help by volunteering to help set-up and take-down the film showing,  passing out flyers in the community, helping to operate the showing, telling your friends, or donating money.

If you would like to help, send an email to Arthur Greisiger at 
and express how it is you would like to help.
Here is a link for donations if you would like to contribute
to the cost of presenting these films.

If you would like to become a sponsor for one or more films, your name or business
will become appropriately associated
in the publicity materials and hand-outs at the showings.

There is also display advertising available in "The Shakespearean Journal" which will help to support these programs and the publication of the Journal.

Details on this program will be posted on 
The Shakespearean Journal: Online Edition
