Sounds like you’re ready for a new season of County Parks' Summer Movies in the Park series! 


Summer Movies in the Park is the largest free and family-friendly outdoor movie series in San Diego County, with more than 80 hosting sites and over a hundred screenings. 

It launched in 2007 as a ‘take back our parks’ initiative – in sync with the County’s Live Well vision to sustain safe, healthy and thriving communities.

Shows run May through October, in neighborhoods from the beach to the desert, and everything in between. Each movie event gives residents a reason to visit their local parks after dark, deterring inappropriate loitering and park use, and bringing additional safety and security to residents’ favorite locales.

Events begin as early as 6 p.m., though actual movie start times are 15 minutes after sunset. Before the movie, many locations provide additional entertainment like arts and crafts, games, costume contests, music, dancing and food trucks.

Coordinators for the 2019 season had added lots of new shows, activities and creative programs. Please bookmark this page for updates.
