Nampa Parks and Rec Announces FREE Outdoor Movie Schedule
The Treasure Valley's two remaining drive-in theaters aren't the only place where you can catch a family, friendly movie under the stars! One of Nampa's best summer traditions is returning for it's seventh season.
The roller coaster ride we've called the 2020-2021 school year is starting to wind down and before you know it, you'll be looking for ways to keep the kids entertained during summer break. Between camp, trips to Roaring Springs and the fair, summer can get expensive for parents and that's why Nampa Parks and Rec strives to offer as many free family activities as they can while the kids are out of school!
Since 2014, Silver Screen on the Green at Optimist Park has been one of those activities! Beginning on June 4, families can bring out their blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy a FREE family movie on Nampa's giant inflatable movie screen!
They plan to keep their COVID-19 protocols in place again this year, so when you arrive you'll notice that the park will be divided into 10' x 10' squares to promote distance between parties. Pre-packaged concessions are available for purchase and hand sanitizer areas will be provided.
So what can you look forward to seeing this year? Here's a look at the 2021 line-up!*
- June 4: Trolls World Tour
- June 11: Spies in Disguise
- June 18: The Croods: A New Age
- June 25: Aladdin (Live Action)
- July 2: Cinderella (Animated)
- July 9: Tom & Jerry
- July 16: Raya and the Last Dragon
- July 23: Ferdinand
- July 30: The Greatest Showman
- August 6: The Secret Life of Pets 2
*Movies begin at dusk.
Nampa's not the only city in the Treasure Valley that offers free outdoor movies for families. After a year off due to COVID-19, Meridian is planning to bring back their Sparklight Movie Night at Settlers Park and will announce their schedule during the first week of May.
We haven't heard if the City of Boise plans on bringing back Movies Under the Stars, which rotated weekly from park to park.
Middleton Area Optimist Club is teasing their Drive-In movie series at Foote Park as "Coming Soon." They did show movies in 2020, so we'll keep you updated when they announce their schedule!
