Commerce Presents ‘Summer Safari Movie Nights’

By EGP Staff Report

Watching a movie outdoors in the summer night air is fast becoming a favorite past time in the Southland, and that includes in the City of Commerce which last week launched its free, and open to the public, Friday night movie screenings at local parks.

The city wants to “provide family entertainment during the long summer days,” according to the announcement from the Commerce Department of Parks and Recreation.

The outdoor movie screenings— which start at 8:30 p.m. and are projected on a jumbo screen with surround sound — will rotate between Bristow, Bandini and Rosewood parks.

Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets and even pack dinner for a nice nighttime picnic, recommend city officials. And if you don’t want to pack your snacks, no worry, food can be purchased at the “Safari Snack Shack.”

The remainder of the summer movie schedule is as follows:

—August 2, “Mighty Joe Young,” Bristow Park.

—August 9, “Robin Hood,” Bandini Park, 4725 Astor Ave. Commerce.

—August 16, “Avatar,” Bandini Park.

—August 23, “Two Brothers,” Rosewood Park, 5600 Harbor St. Commerce.

—August 30, “The Lion King,” Rosewood Park.
