ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – SUNY is partnering with the Make It Up State Marketplace to bring live music and local vendors selling food, fine art, jewelry, and goods with a focus on health and wellbeing to downtown Albany. The Marketplace is open every Thursday throughout the summer from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is available to everyone.

Also, every Friday for the next five weeks Bites Camera Action is having an outdoor movie series at SUNY System Administration. The lawn opens for seating at 7:30 p.m. with movies beginning around 8:30 p.m.

Bites Camera Action Schedule:

  • June 25: The Greatest Showman 
  • July 2: Independence Day (25th anniversary of theatrical release)
  • July 9: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (celebrating co-star Tom Hanks’ birthday)
  • July 16: A League of Their Own
  • July 23: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

“SUNY is committed to the Albany community and we’re thrilled to bring the Make it Up State Marketplace to our historic SUNY Building in beautiful downtown Albany. Together, we will help rejuvenate our local economy hit hard by the pandemic,” said SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras. “With so much time spent apart, the outdoor Marketplace and our ‘Bites Camera Action’ movie series are both terrific opportunities to reconnect with one another, to feed our souls with great food and art, and to support downtown businesses that were hit hard by the pandemic.”
