Sundown Cinema has reached the end of its 2023 season and you don’t want to miss the final screening! This popular series presents awesome FREE movies on a giant screen in various San Francisco parks, and now’s your last chance to enjoy it until 2024.
The final screening is Ghostbusters (1984) this Friday, October 20 at Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in McLaren Park. Doors open at 5pm for the 6:30pm screening, and you can participate in a costume contest before the movie for a chance to win flight vouchers from Alaska Airlines.
Arrive early to enjoy live music, performances, and pre-show entertainment, and snag a seat while munching on delicious treats from local food trucks. The event organizers encourage guests to walk, bike, or take public transport to the screenings and to leave alcohol at home. Be sure to bring warm clothes and blankets because, of course, this is San Francisco.
Sundown Cinema has been a favorite local event for 5 years running. It’s a great opportunity to connect with your neighborhood and enjoy the city’s beautiful parks in a cozy outdoor setting.
The series is free and open to all, but you can RSVP to try and win reserved seats and special prizes for each screening. If you want to purchase VIP seating, proceeds will go to support SF Parks Alliance so they can continue to deliver amazing events like these.
“Sundown Cinema is a way for everyone to celebrate their parks, so it was important to us to bring an even wider range of films than we have in previous years,” says Drew Becher, CEO of SF Parks Alliance. “There are movies in everyone’s neighborhood, but these will be worth traveling for, too.”
The series comes to us courtesy of SF Parks Alliance, Alamo Drafthouse, and Waymo in collaboration with Do The Bay, SF Rec & Parks, Presidio Trust, and Port of San Francisco.
