Free and open to the public, Family Movie Nights feature a variety of family-friendly film favorites and genres, including comedies, dramas, and thrillers, all projected on a 26-foot inflatable movie screen in the park’s amphitheater. Each will also include a movie-related pre-show activity for kids beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and/or chairs but are reminded that alcohol, smoking, and unleashed pets are prohibited.

Future film screenings are scheduled on Saturday, July 22 (Zootopia), and Saturday, Aug. 5 (Spider Man: No Way Home). Showtime is 8:30 p.m. Anyone planning to attend is urged to arrive early as viewing space may be limited.
