Free and Fabulous Family Fun in Your Neighborhood!

Summer Movies in the Park is the largest free and family-friendly outdoor movie series in San Diego, with over a hundred screenings at dozens of parks across the region. The program launched in 2007 as a ‘take back our parks’ initiative, providing residents with unique opportunities to visit their local recreation destinations after hours to watch blockbuster hits under a starry night sky. Shows run May through October, with pre-show activities before dark and movies beginning about 15 minutes after sunset.
