What’s better than watching a movie? Watching a movie outside for free. Especially when that movie is Star Wars.

The summer cinema series at Skyline Park is already underway, and it will run every Saturday night through August 6 at 16th and Arapahoe streets.

The movies for the summer are:

  •    July 9 – Minions
  •    July 16 – Finding Nemo
  •    July 23 – Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  •    July 30 – The Goonies
  •    August 6 – Grease

I would watch every one of those movies, except for Finding Nemo, because I just saw Finding Dory and I’m not ready to cry at a movie again just yet.

The movies start at dusk – also known as the end of the day – with various entertainment starting an hour beforehand. Bring chairs and a blanket.
