Reid Park, Demeester Performing Arts Pavilion,  900 S Randolph Way, Tucson, AZ 85716
All movies begin at dusk

Cox Communications started the Movies in the Park program with a projector and a repurposed bed sheet. Now a decade later, Movies in the Park has grown to be a community favorite across Pima and Cochise Counties. Cox invites area residents to bring a blanket or lawn chair and join us for a free movie along with popcorn, soda, food vendors, live music, jumping castles, balloon twisters, and arts and crafts exhibits from area non-profits.


All movies begin at dusk (approximately 7pm-7:30pm).  Attendees are invited to bring their own chairs, blankets and seating.
