“Ocean’s 11” — Rat Pack Classic Screening at Pier A, Kicking Off Sinatra Centennial Celebration
No better way to kick off this summer’s “Movies Under the Stars” than to acknowledge the celebration of Sinatra’s centennial with a screening of the Rat Pack opus, Ocean’s Eleven (1960).
For Frank-ophiles, Hoboken is the place to be this week, as a number of events will take place honoring Sinatra while the city gears up to celebrate his Cent’anni (100 years) over the next few months.
On Wednesday, check out “Movies Under the Stars” as Danny Ocean and his crew try their luck at ripping off five of the top casinos in Vegas—all in in one night.
Then on Thursday, June 12, Hoboken will host its annual “Sinatra Idol” contest, as 16 singers vie for the coveted “Sinatra Idol” crown.
Contestants will also perform at number of venues throughout Hoboken on Friday and Saturday—including the Sinatra Cabaret event at Leo’s Grandevous Saturday night.
Finally, on Sunday, “Sinatra Idol” winners past and present will team up with Swingadelic at Sinatra Park for a concert at 6 p.m.
This is all a build up to the celebration of Frank’s 100th birthday on December 12—born here in Hoboken at 415 Monroe Street on that date in 1915.
Should be one hell of a party…
