Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Wawa Welcome America

Wawa Welcome America

One highlight of the Wawa Welcome America festival, Philadelphia’s multiday Independence Day celebration, is outdoor movies shown on big screens in iconic city spots. Crowds gather on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art for a free screening of 1976 classic Rocky, starring Sylvester Stallone—and the very same steps where viewers enjoy the Academy Award-winning film.
