Watching Rocky on the very steps that made Mr. Stallone famous has become a tradition during the week of July 4th in Philadelphia. Wawa Welcome America is continuing this tradition by opening this year’s Philly @ the Movies Series with the iconic Philadelphia film in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art right next to the famous Rocky statue. Oh, it's free!

There's even 'Rocky' trivia before the movie beginning at 7 p.m.

This event is in partnership with the Philadelphia Film Society
