Summer Cinema

Old Pasadena Film Festival 2011

Old Pasadena Summer Cinema 2016

The Old Pasadena Film Festival has a new name and soon will launch a new image. Old Pasadena Summer Cinema will continue the tradition as a month-long, free movie series featuring screenings in predominantly outdoor locations.  This annual summer film program celebrates motion picture in all of its forms offering a variety of audience-pleasing movie titles and genres. Returning in July, Old Pasadena Summer Cinema will announce this year's program shortly, so check back.

All of the Old Pasadena Summer Cinema screenings are free and open to the public. Starting at 7:00pm, the Central Park screenings offer you a chance to grab your picnic provisions from one of the many options in Old Pasadena, or from select food trucks, and enjoy ambient music from local DJs before the movies screen. Bring your own chairs and blankets to Central Park screenings. One Colorado Courtyard, Distant Lands, and the Armory Center for the Arts, provide chairs, but be sure to get there a little early for best seating.

Take advantage of the warm summer evenings and come out before the movie to dine at one of the 100 Old Pasadena restaurants all concentrated within 22 historic blocks.
