Portland's 2013 Movies in the Park Lights Up the City's Nights
Portland Parks & Recreation Department

From the end of June through mid-September, parks throughout Portland will be alight with the flicker of film projectors as the Portland Parks & Recreation Department puts on its summer Movies in the Park. Forty-six screenings will keep families of city dwellers entertained, and bands will start the good times rolling on the vast majority of the evenings.

Films include classics, such as Sabrina and Casablanca; modern-day classics such as Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Princess Bride and Oregon favorite The Goonies; as well as recent releases such as The Hobbit and 42: The True Story of an American Legend, the new film about Jackie Robinson.

The Movies in the Park series is part of Portland's Summer Free for All, which also will provide musical accompaniement to Portland's summer nights via the Concerts in the Parks series. Those two park-centered series of outings represent almost 100 entertainment of events -- and those are just a portion of the amazing array of activities -- free and otherwise -- going on in Portland this summer.

Below is the list of films shown by date. Local musicians kick things off at 6:30 p.m., then the projector comes to life at dusk. Free popcorn provided! FILMUSIK's Planet of the Dinosaurs with live voice actors, musicians and sound effects sounds like a particular treat. For more info, check: portlandoregon.gov
