Odessa to screen seven movies in its parks this summer

The City of Odessa’s “Movies in the Park” series will feature seven family-friendly films screened at various parks in the city.

The free movie series starts June 2, when DC League of Super Pets will be played at San Jacinto Park. Subsequent movies will include Puss in Boots: The Last Wish at Optimist Park on June 9; Vivo at Sherwood Park on June 16; Lightyear at Jim Parker Park on June 23; Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank at Lawndale Park on July 7; Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile at Mckinney Park on July 21; and Hotel Transylvania at Floyd Gwin on Aug. 4. Movies will start at sundown.

Concession stands will be stocked and staffed by the city. The movie series is presented by the City of Odessa Parks and Recreation Department.

“Grab your friends and family and head over to the park for an unforgettable movie night experience under the stars,” the city said.

The city also recommended that moviegoers bring bug spray to keep the pesky critters away.
