Summer Movies in the Park Returns to San Diego County


Get ready for a season of cinematic fun under the stars with the return of Summer Movies in the Park across San Diego County! This beloved community movie event series offers a perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy a safe, magical night outdoors, watching your favorite movies. Bring your picnic blanket and beach chairs, and be sure to arrive early to grab a great spot!

Originally launched in 2007, Summer Movies in the Park has become a cherished tradition for local San Diego residents. This free event series was designed to encourage locals to visit their county and city parks, providing a safe, enjoyable evening that deters inappropriate after-hours park use and loitering. By creating positive park experiences, the program has fostered a sense of safety and community, encouraging more frequent visits to our local parks.

Over the years, the program has evolved to include new movies, new park locations, new participating partners, and additional options to make these events even more accessible and inclusive. Hundreds of thousands of San Diegans have enjoyed films on our big screens, and we are excited to continue this tradition for many years.

Mark your calendars and get ready to join your community for a fantastic summer of movies in the park!
