The Bel Air Downtown Alliance is pleased to announce that Kiddie Academy, a locally headquartered education-based child care company, will be joining the 2016 Summer Movie Nights as the Title Sponsor.

Six times a year the community comes together to watch the movies under the stars. The Bel Air Downtown Alliance’s Summer Movies Nights is a great time and place to bring the whole family for a fun and free movie night at Shamrock Park with pre-movie entertainment provided by the Bel Air Cultural Arts Commission. Our movies are not only free and family friendly (most are rated pg) but also come with free popcorn and face painting.

Pre-movie entertainment starts at 7:15pm and the movies start at sunset. The movie schedule for 2016 is June 10, June 24, July 8, July 22, August 19 & August 26. To see the full list of movies, please click here.

Event is weather permitting. In the case of bad weather, the event will be cancelled and not rescheduled. The call will be made at 3pm on the day of the movie.
