Prescott Park Summer Outdoor Movie Series runs every Monday night! See what’s showing next!

Remember the fun of the drive-in? Well, it’s back and better than ever (minus your car, of course). Now you can enjoy some of your favorite movies under the stars in Prescott Park.

You’ll find a giant screen on stage, incredible sound, HD projector and concessions to snack on while you enjoy a movie on a blanket, chair (bring your own, or rent a blanket space from the park), or at one of the tables for rent!

The park opens at 7pm and the movie starts at dusk. Dusk changes over the course of the summer. In July, it is approximately 8:30pm and in August, approximately 7:45pm. They try to start the movies as early as possible, ultimately having to wait for the screen to be dark enough to project a movie on them.
