Summer Cinema

Summer Cinema event attendees watching a movie on a large digital screen in Upjohn Park as the sun sets.

There’s something special about watching a movie outside, luckily Kzoo Parks has that covered for you this summer! We bring the movies to you with a large LED video board in the parks you already play in.

This year we will be hosting six movie events on every other Friday in different parks and community spaces throughout the city.

At each event the video screen will be set up with music playing at 6 p.m. and the movie will begin at 7 p.m. Community members are welcome to settle into their spot and enjoy time in the park before the movie begins. Snacks will also be provided while supplies last.

A free disc golf clinic will be held just before each movie, starting at 6 p.m. Members of the Professional Disc Golf Association will teach participants the basic skills of disc golf like driving, approach throws, and putting. Portable baskets and discs will be available for community members to use. Free face painting will also be offered at the June 24, July 8, July 22, August 5, and August 19 movies.

This is a free event, and all community members are welcome. Please be sure to follow local health official guidelines to help keep everyone safe.
