Description

Old Pasadena Summer Cinema features Tim Burton's zany Mars Attacks! (1996, PG – 106 min) in an under-the-stars, FREE screening at historic Central Park. The film is part of the month-long Old Pasadena Summer Cinema series. A parody of science fiction B movies with elements of horror and political satire, Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks! follows along as Martian spacecraft head toward Earth with unbeatable weapons and a cruel sense of humor, despite the diplomatic efforts of President James Dale (Jack Nicholson) and his political aides.

Old Pasadena Summer Cinema returns for another year as a month-long, FREE movie series featuring 17 screenings in unique urban locations. Running from July 5 – July 28, this annual summer film program celebrates motion picture in all forms, offering a variety of audience-pleasing movie titles and genres at diverse locales throughout the historic district of Old Pasadena. All the Old Pasadena Summer Cinema screenings are free and open to the public. Visit www.oldpasadena.org/summercinema for complete listings.

Three of Old Pasadena Summer Cinema screenings take place in historic Central Park and include special free activities, free ice cream from Paradis (while supplies last), DJ sets from KCRW Glenn Red, and the chance to picnic in the picturesque setting prior to each film – bring your own low chairs and blankets for seating. Films begin at 8:30pm with pre-activities starting at 6:30pm.

This event is free and no tickets are required. Seating is first-come, first-served -- arrive early for the best spots!
