“Free Summer Kids Movie Series” Returns to Mary Pickford Theatre June 14 – Aug. 2, 2024

The Cathedral City Parks and Community Events Commission (PACE), in partnership with the Mary Pickford Theatre, presents the return of the “Free Summer Kids Movie Series” happening every Friday at 11:00 a.m. starting Friday, June 14, 2024, thru Friday, August 2, 2024. Doors open at 10:30 a.m. The film series offers free admission to see a different movie geared towards kids each Friday morning at the Mary Pickford Theatre in Downtown Cathedral City.

The Cathedral City Parks and Community Events Commission will be offering free water and a small popcorn for the first 100 kids at each event during the 8-week period. The cost for this participation is $800 from the FY 2023-2024 PACE Small Events Budget, which was approved by the City Council at the regular meeting on Wednesday, April 24, 2024.

200 free books will be available at every movie donated by the Read With Me Volunteer Programs. A book will also be read by the Cathedral City Library before every movie.

Seating is limited and residents can pick up the free passes at the door inside the Mary Pickford Theatre.

You may still attempt to go to the film series without a Priority Line Pass, but you will be placed in a standby line. Once the Priority Line Pass is empty, those waiting in the standby line will be admitted if seats are still available.
