Movie Mondays 2017

Our new Julianne and George Argyros Plaza may be undergoing a transformation this summer, but that’s not stopping us from another season of FREE films al fresco at Segerstrom Center’s FREE Movie Mondays! Local movie-goers can catch up with friends old and new on these casual evenings of fun activities, picnic dinners or specialties from popular food trucks and watching five fan-favorite films on consecutive Mondays.
 

 
Set-up begins at 5:30 p.m., with the movie starting at dusk (approximately 8 p.m.). Due to construction, our viewing area will be smaller, so space will be limited. Download the map below to help you decide: chair or blanket? Guests may bring their own snacks or picnics but tables, BBQs or large food set-ups will not be permitted, so we can have as many friends as possible join us. Food trucks will be on site for food purchases. Kia Motors America, the Center’s Official Automotive Partner, will be at Movie Mondays each week with fun games and prizes*.

Also new this year, closed captioning will be included at all showings!
