Entertainment options for this fall at U.S Bank Plaza

By Nicole Drake

f you’re looking for something fun, free and exciting to be a part of this fall, downtown Cleveland has got you covered.

From Aug. 11 through Oct. 20, the U.S. Bank Plaza on East 14 Street and Euclid Avenue will be the main stage for the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra’s Jazz Discovery Series.

Led by Chris Anderson, one of Ohio’s finest educators with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District through the All-City Arts Program and at The Music Settlement and Cuyahoga Community College and trombone performer, the series introduces a cross genre of Cleveland-based artists.

A Blues Showcase, featuring the sounds of B.B. King, Louis Jordan, Miles Davis and many others, was held on Sept. 8.

On Sept. 20, Cleveland’s best dancers and composers will set the stage for the audience to dance and experience the music.

For the next series being held at U.S. Bank Plaza, be sure to bring blankets, folding chairs and popcorn.

Come and enjoy the Summer Movie Film Series taking place from July 18 through Sept. 27.

Popular movies begin at dusk on a 17-foot-by-10-foot movie screen accompanied by al fresco dining at DYNOMITE.

Families and friends will watch each screening with the allure of the back-drop of the GE Cleveland chandelier and the 44-foot PlayhouseSquare Retro Sign.

This month, watch “Draft Day” on Sept. 12 and “Captain America – The Winter Soldier” on Sept. 27.

Be sure to get your “selfie” with the Chandellier and use #GEChandellier on social media.
