This summer, San Diego families can enjoy 122 free movies being played in parks throughout the county. All of the movies are family-friendly and range from classics like Aladdin, Mary Poppins and Field of Dreams to recent hits like Zootopia, The Good Dinosaur and even Star Wars The Force Awakens.
Upcoming Movies in the Park
At most of the parks families can enjoy pre-movie fun including crafts and games. You can show your Close5 app for complimentary bags of popcorn & cotton candy at select events, and each time Close5 is at an event, they give away something really awesome. Here’s this weekend’s giveaway . . .
And, remember that laughing Chewbacca mask Facebook woman? Find the Close5 table at an upcoming park screening of Star Wars and enter to win your own mask.
But perhaps even better than prizes, popcorn and games is that in many of our local parks, moms and dads can enjoy an adult beverage along with the movie. Alcohol is banned in some parks for 24 hours each day and in all parks for at least some parts of each day. But you can enjoy your beverage in many parks between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. including:
