If you are looking for a budget and family-friendly source of entertainment, look no further than the 2021 Outdoor Summer Cinema series presented by the City of Yakima's Parks and Recreation Department.

The series began last week and will continue through mid-August. On the Parks & Rec website, they say, "There’s nothing better than watching a good movie with family and friends outside under the stars." We agree!

What Should I Bring?

Grab a blanket if you want to sit up close to the screen or a lawn chair if you'd rather be further back. Maybe grab a picnic basket filled with snacks and get ready to enjoy the show!
