Old Pasadena Summer Cinema returns for another year as a month-long, FREE movie series featuring nearly 20 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 various locales throughout the historic district of Old Pasadena. All the Old Pasadena Summer Cinema screenings are free and open to the public.

Mars Attacks! (1996) PG – 106 min. 

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.  

This screening in Central Park provides the chance to picnic in the park prior to the film, and includes DJ sets from KCRW's Glenn Red and free ice cream from Paradis (while supplies last). Bring your own chairs and blankets to Central Park.

6:30pm Music + Special Activities; Film begins at 8:30pm.
