Newsletter July – August 2015: Summer Movies in the Park
First 5 San Diego is excited to once again sponsor Summer Movies in the Park. The series of free outdoor movie events is a collaborative effort between the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation, the Cities of San Diego, Chula Vista, El Cajon, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, National City, Oceanside, Poway, San Marcos, Vista, along with USS Midway Museum, and the Port of San Diego. Each event provides opportunities to gather as a community and build sense of community and offers residents free opportunities to safely enjoy themselves outdoors in the summer evenings.
This year, the summer movie lineup features 120 flicks – 31 more than last year – taking place at parks throughout the county.
The movie calendar includes newer features like “Wreck it Ralph” (Aug. 7 at Renette Park in El Cajon) and classics like “Mary Poppins” (Aug. 8 at Old Poway Park in Poway). There will be numerous showings of “Big Hero 6” at parks throughout the county. To view the full listing, visit http://www.summermoviesinthepark.com/.
The Summer Movies at the Park series runs through Sept. 26. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair, blankets and jackets. Arrive early to enjoy games and activities before the movie starts at dusk!
