Final Free Movie Alert: Catch ‘E.T’ On Friday Night At The Jerry Garcia Amphitheater

This is Sundown Cinema’s last movie night!

San Francisco Parks Alliance and Do The Bay have partnered to bring back the popular Sundown Cinema series, which presents awesome FREE movies on a giant screen in various parks around the city. Each screening will be accompanied by live performances from local musical groups. Most screenings have already passed, and there’s only one left!

Catch E.T. on Friday night at the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater, with events starting at 5pm and the screening just after sunset around 6:30pm.  The event will include a Halloween costume contest at 6pm, and a stargazing with real astronomers directly after the movie, courtesy of Unistellar.

Arrive early to enjoy live music and performances, 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.

The series is free and open to all. VIP seats are already sold out, but you can RSVP to try and win reserved seats and an Xfinity gift pack ($140 value)!


SF Parks Alliance and Do The Bay were motivated to bring back outdoor film screenings in response to the delta variant surge. As such, they will carefully monitor the Covid-19 situation and hold each event in accordance with current local health guidelines. They strongly encourage guests to wear masks!

Sundown Cinema has been a favorite local event for 3 years running! It’s a great opportunity to connect with your neighborhood and enjoy the city’s beautiful parks in a cozy outdoor setting. Donations to SF Parks Alliance are encouraged so we can continue enjoying awesome events like these.
