If you’re looking for Shakespeare in the Park, mosey down to Cedar City, but if any old movie will do, you're covered a little further north in Utah Valley. Bring your blankets, camp chairs and popcorn over to Rock Canyon Park (2620 N. 1200 East, Provo) Monday nights for a movie on a big blow-up screen. Come early though, because the movie nights are popular.
Early arrivals won’t be bored. There will be a Wii Just Dance competition and a food truck round-up. The actual movie will start around 9 p.m. or whenever it gets dark. The movies are family-friendly, free and open to the public:
Aug. 11: The Lego Movie
Aug. 18: Jurassic Park
Aug. 25: Wreck it Ralph
Outside air making you itch? The Orem Public Library (58 N State Street, Orem) is showing indoor screenings in their media auditorium all this month. These shows all start at 6:30 p.m. except for the Saturday, Aug. 9 showing, which is at 2 p.m.
Aug. 8: What About Bob?
Aug. 9: The Muppet Movie
Aug. 11: The Muppet Movie
Aug. 15: A Streetcar Named Desire
Aug. 18: Heavy Weights
Aug. 22: I Declare War
Aug. 25: The Sandlot
Aug. 29: Secondhand Lions
Aug. 8: Play Time, 5 p.m.; Megane (Glasses), 7:30 p.m.
Aug. 9: Play Time, 3 p.m.; Megane (Glasses), 5:30 p.m.; Play Time, 7:45 p.m.
And if you're sick of looking at a screen, consider National S’mores Day at Utah Lake (4400 W. Center Street, Provo) from 6–10 p.m. on Aug. 9. Macey’s is providing free s’mores, and the park is providing free paddle board races and a scavenger hunt. There will also be food trucks. No movies, but a stunning sunset over the lake is included.
