Final movie in the park for summer 2015

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The wildly popular Movies in the Park will be showing its final movie for the summer. The program is hosted annually by the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance and Cox Communications and is free and open to the public. 

Movies in the Park began in 2003 with a re purposed bed sheet and a movie projector and more than 12 years later it is a city wide event, with the movies being shown on a 40 foot screen. Those who want to see the movies are encouraged to bring a blanket or a lawn chair and enjoy the free movie. There are food vendors and food trucks, live music, jumping castles, as well as arts and crafts exhibits, enough things to do to make it a family-friendly evening. 

"As a member of the community, we love kicking off summer with Movies in the Park," said Lisa Lovallo, Cox Communications Vice President for Southern Arizona in a recent release. "It's a great opportunity to bring neighbors together, and we appreciate the opportunity to say thank you for their support."

Events kick off at 5:30 p.m. at Reid Park Demeester Outdoor Performance Theater (900 S. Randolph Way)

Final movie showing, The Princess Bride – Friday, August 14

Attendees can gain access to the movies by entering off of Country Club Road.
