Looking for free family activities this summer? Want to enjoy the beauty of your own neighborhood?  Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) is once again bringing "Movies in the Park" to neighborhood parks throughout the city, beginning Friday, July 3 through Friday, Sept. 11.
Highlights for 2009 include four movies in 3D; two movies subtitled for individuals with hearing disabilities; one movie in Spanish and subtitled in English; a series of classic Hollywood (Wizard of Oz, Casablanca and Singin' in the Rain) offered at historic Laurelhurst Park; and two movies presented at the amphitheatre in Washington Park – A Tribute to Elvis, featuring the movie Blue Hawaii, and a sing-a-long version of the 2008 hit musical Mamma Mia!
"Movies in the Park" is one of several free programs offered by Portland Parks & Recreation this summer to bring community members and neighbors together to share an enjoyable activity in their neighborhood parks. Popular family movies are shown on a giant, 268-square foot screen with a state-of-the-art sound system.
Movies will begin at dark (between 8 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.), and are weather permitting.  A rainout will be called by 5 p.m. and will be posted at the park. Prior to each movie, attendees can enjoy a variety of free entertainment beginning at 6:30 p.m.

-What should I bring?-
•               Blanket to lay on or chairs to sit in
•               Blanket to wrap up in the case it gets a little cool.
•               Your dog is welcome – but it's your responsibility to keep them on leash and cleaned up after!
•               An appetite for popcorn – it's free!
•               Drinks, but no alcohol. Shaved Ice, Jamba Juice and hotdog/pizza concessions will be available at most movies.
•               Items to pass the time: ball/Frisbee to throw with the kids, etc.
 
-When should I arrive?-
•               Early to get the best spot. Movies draw 500 to 5,000 people, depending on the park. 
•               Live entertainment begins at 6 p.m. Movies begin at dark (Usually between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.)
 
-Where should I sit?-
•               Just like a traditional theatre, don't sit too close to the front. Try for center.
•               If you bring chairs with you, try not to sit in front of people on blankets. It's just common courtesy.
 
Any rules?
•               Cell phones must be silenced and all movies are no smoking venues.
•               Fun is a requirement!
