Camas, WA – The City of Camas Parks & Recreation’s free Movies in the Park series returns to Crown Park! Two movies will be shown this year with the voted top-pick movie “Onward” kicking off this year’s short series and the live version of the Lion King ending the season.
On Friday, July 30, “Onward,” a Disney/Pixar collaboration, tells the story of two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley, who get an unexpected opportunity to spend one more day with their late dad and embark on an extraordinary quest aboard Barley’s epic van Guinevere. The movie will begin at 9 pm at the Crown Park shelter (NE Everett & NE 17th Ave.).
On Friday, August 20, the 2019 Disney live re-make of the movie favorite the “Lion King” will show at 8:30 pm, and will include pre-movie activities starting at 7:30 pm. This 2019 live-action remake of the original animated version tells the same story of the young lion prince who, after the murder of his father, flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery. The well-known original songs are featured in the movie, making this new version a new favorite!
Movies in the Park is in its 14th year (after a hiatus in 2020) and shows movies that are rated G or PG, to adhere to our family-friendly events criteria. At the beginning of 2019, selected K-8 classrooms in the Camas School District were able to cast their votes for their favorite movies. The top two winning movies from that vote are the ones we are sharing with our community this year.
The Movies in the Park series is sponsored by Camas United Methodist Church. At this time, movies will not feature a food vendor, so plan to bring your favorite dinner, movie snacks and drinks to the park. Food can also be purchased at Top Burger, located across the street from the park, or from a variety of restaurants in downtown Camas, four blocks away. Bring chairs or blankets for seating and note that, to allow fair viewing, chairs are placed in one-half of the park viewing area and blankets in the other half. This is a free event. No registration is required. And, please note that alcohol and animals are not allowed in Crown Park.
Movies in the Park is coordinated by Camas Parks and Recreation.
