Earlier in August, the museum teamed up with the Peoria Park District to create “Friday Double Feature at the Riverfront.” For just $10, guests can enjoy live music, a complimentary adult beverage and access to museum galleries, plus entrance to the evening’s riverfront entertainment. The Double Feature continues after 5 p.m. on select Fridays through Sept. 20. Starting in September, beyond free access to galleries, the planetarium and other activities, Peoria Riverfront Museum members (of all levels) will receive additional benefits, including discounted movies in the Giant Screen Theater and a number of free garage parking passes. Beginning Labor Day, the Giant Screen Theater will expand its concession menu to include wine and beer for evening showings.
