Our Mission

In May through October, 2019 we will host 150 free evening events and entertain nearly 50,000 San Diego residents and visitors.

Summer Movies in the Park is unique in many ways:

  • Free alternative to expensive movie theater outings, especially in today’s tough economy
  • An opportunity to bond with family in beautiful natural settings of San Diego
  • A memorable experience for everyone from grandparents to toddlers
  • Convenient, local, fun and safe night out
  • A family tradition for local families
  • A true community builder across diverse ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds

Taking Back Our Parks

The Summer Movies in the Park event series began in 2007 as a ‘take back our parks’ initiative, giving local residents a reason to visit their local county and city parks for a free and safe evening event. This well-attended community activity deterred inappropriate after-hours park use and loitering and gave residents an opportunity to feel safe in their local park, thus encouraging future visits.
