Outdoor Movies Coming to Riverside

 City of Riverside to host free movie showings!


The City of Riverside Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department has partnered with the Riverside Downtown Partnership and the Arlington Business Partnership to host free movie showings all summer long at a variety of City of Riverside Parks!  Every Friday and Saturday from June 15 – August 4, a series of free G/PG rated family movies will be shown with pre-movie activities and prizes.

For the month of July, the Riverside Downtown Partnership hosts “Movies on Main” located at the Main Street Pedestrian Mall in downtown Riverside every Thursday starting July 5 – July 26.

Come early! Seating is on the grass at each event, so bring a beach chair or blanket and enjoy the activities and movies with the family. Each movie begins at dusk. For a complete listing of movies and locations, visit RivReg.org.
