Summer Bash & Movies in the Park


Free movies in Tacoma’s parks: You bring the popcorn, we’ll bring the stars!

Pack your snacks, blankets and lawn chairs and head to the park for a free outdoor movie for the whole family! Summer Bash – featuring Click! Mobile Movies – is a summertime tradition in Tacoma.

This summer, enjoy family-friendly fun and a movie, presented by BECU and movie sponsor Click! Network in partnership with Metro Parks Tacoma.

The series kicked off at Ethnic Fest, Saturday, July 25, and continues on Friday or Saturday nights at various Metro Parks locations around the city. In addition to the flick, there will be live music, games, food vendors and much more at each venue. Seating is on the lawn, so attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or folding chairs.
