Movies in the Park

“The Nut Job,” sponsored by Signal Hill Petroleum. The movie and popcorn are free, and the time spent with family is priceless! Bring a lawn chair, blanket, and picnic-style dinner. Movie begins at dusk. An incorrigibly self-serving squirrel helps pals raid a nut store to survive that is also the front for a human gang’s bank robbery.
June 30, Admiral Kidd Park; July 2, Orizaba Park

Three months of fun in the sun! Visit for schedule.
