The Hingham Harborworks
Presented by Showcase Cinemas, the Hingham Harborworks will light up the South Shore once again in 2022
NORWOOD, Mass., May 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Showcase Cinemas, a world leader in the motion picture exhibition industry, today announced the company's official sponsorship of the 2022 Hingham Haborworks fireworks display and celebration, bringing this beloved tradition back to the South Shore! Presented by Showcase Cinemas and hosted by the Hingham Lions Club, the Hingham Harborworks celebration will take place on July 1, 2022, at Hingham Harbor.
The community-wide fireworks event, which has been a cherished annual Fourth of July tradition for over 25 years, did not take place for the past three years due to lack of funding, volunteers and the pandemic. Given the event's importance to the local community, Showcase Cinemas, which is opening its newest theater location, Showcase Cinema de Lux Hanover Crossing, on the South Shore this fall, decided to step in. With Showcase Cinemas' support, the 2022 Hingham Harborworks will once again give the community the opportunity to watch Hingham Harbor sparkle under the fireworks as part of local Fourth of July celebrations.
"Community involvement is extremely important to us at Showcase Cinemas, and we are thrilled to become part of the fabric of the South Shore with the opening of our newest cinema location at Hanover Crossing this fall," said Mark Malinowski, VP of Global Marketing for Showcase Cinemas. "At our heart, we are an entertainment company, and we couldn't be more proud to work with the Hingham Lions Club to bring this community celebration and tremendous entertainment opportunity back to Hingham, and ensure the 2022 Hingham Harborworks will once again light up the sky and be bigger and better than ever."
"As the host of the Harborworks celebration for over 25 years, we're extremely appreciative of the support from Showcase Cinemas as the catalyst to bring this cherished Fourth of July tradition back to the community," said Mark Casale, Hingham Lions Club. "We enjoy hosting a time-honored event where families and neighbors are able to relax and enjoy, and we look forward to celebrating with everyone on July 1."
The annual fireworks event at Hingham Harbor is a beloved South Shore tradition attracting over 10,000+ South Shore attendees year-after-year. While the event has been on hold since 2019, the Lions Club has a newly formed ad hoc Harborworks Committee of Hingham residents who are committed to bringing the event back better-than-ever before with increased volunteers and the funding and support from Showcase Cinemas.
Showcase Cinema de Lux Hanover Crossing is slated to open in fall 2022 as part of the Hanover Crossing mixed-use development. The cinema will offer eight auditoriums, including an XPlus Laser Premium Large Format auditorium with laser projection, Dolby Atmos™ immersive sound, power recliners and a huge screen. It will also offer a lobby bar and lounge and state-of-the-art concessions stand and box office. The cinema will offer the popular Starpass loyalty program, through which members earn 10% on virtually all purchases and receive a $5 voucher with every $50 spent. Children and families can also join the Showcase Popcorn Club, offering special perks like a free movie ticket and more.
