Starting July 5th, Old Pasadena Management offers 20 films to be viewed in the great outdoors under the night sky.

Thursdays through Saturdays until July 28th, Central Park on Raymond Avenue, the local travel shop Distant Lands, and One Colorado will host an evening at the movies.

There will be cult classics like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, Jaws, Psycho, and Poltergeist. If being creeped out isn’t your thing, check out What’s Up Doc?, a classic comedy from 1972 with Ryan O’Neal and Barbra Streisand, or—for a completely different style of comedy—Napoleon Dynamite made in 2004. For those romantically inclined, John Cusak’s Serendipity and Sandra Bullock’s While You Were Sleeping are on the menu.

Academy Award nominees and winners are well represented by Sunset BoulevardThe Philadelphia StoryHigh Noon, The Miracle Worker, and A Streetcar Named Desire.

Distant Lands will be showing The Way, directed by Emilio Estevez; Vicky Cristina Barcelona, one of Woody Allen’s most commercially successful films; the award-winning Lost in Translation with Bill Murray; and A Map for Saturday, a documentary following “extreme long-term travelers” who go out to explore the world.
