A trip to the movie theater on any given night can cost a family of two adults and two children anywhere from $50 to $60 before popcorn, beverages and candy. But this summer, on select nights at designated Los Angeles County parks in the Second Supervisorial District, families can enjoy a movie and popcorn for free.
From now until September 28, L.A. County Board of Supervisors Chairman Mark Ridley-Thomas and the county Department of Parks and Recreation will host MRT’s Free Summer Movies at county parks throughout the Second Supervisorial District. A large 12 ‘ x 9” screen, projector and multiple speakers will be set-up to transform a section of the parks into an outdoor theater.
“Families can come early and fire up the grill at the park before the movie starts and make an evening out of it or just come for the movie,” said Mika Yamamoto, regional operations manager for the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation. “We want constituents to experience all the amenities the park has to offer.”
MRT’s Free Summer Movies is intended to be a safe and relaxing event for adults, kids and neighbors alike.
“We want everyone to come out to their local park, spend time with their family and friends and enjoy a movie under the stars,” said Chairman Ridley –Thomas.
Movies will start at dusk. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, snacks and lawn chairs. Popcorn will be provided free of charge.
