Marin Movies in the Park for Summer 2014

May 12, 2014

Film Night in the Park Marin County SummerSummer means its time for Film Night in the Park, the annual series of free outdoor movies presented on a giant screen in various parks throughout Marin County. Show time for all the movies is 8 pm, but arrive a little early for music, a raffle, and a cartoon. Reminiscent of the drive-in movies of yesteryear, Film Night in the Park is noted for its audience participation, with cheers for heroes, boos and hisses for villains, sing-alongs, and hearty applause.

This season's offerings are a fun mix of recent hits like Pixar's Monsters University, Frozen, Despicable Me 2, and the LEGO Movie and classics including Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, The Iron Giant, and even Blood Alley, the John Wayne movie filmed right here in Marin at China Camp. There's definitely something for everyone!

Grab your blanket, pillow and pack the picnic basket—because Film Night in the Park is coming soon to a park near you. Marin venues include Fairfax, China Camp State Park, San Anselmo's Creek Park, and San Rafael's Peacock Gap Park. Film Night in the Park also presents movies in San Francisco at Dolores Park, Union Square, and Washington Square Park.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. Popcorn, candy, and sodas will be available for sale. For more information call (415) 272-2756 or visit
