Outdoor movie nights at Assiniboine Park are returning for a fourth season this summer.

Movies in the Park is just one of the many highlights the Assiniboine Park Conservancy has announced for its Red River Co-op Summer Entertainment Series, running June through August.

The free entertainment includes more than 30 events, such as musical acts at the Lyric Theatre, jazz in the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden, art exhibits in the Pavilion Gallery Museum, and Movies in the Park.

“After a long, hard winter we are looking forward to green grass, sunny skies, and another exciting season of great music and blockbuster movies,” said Kevin Hunter, APC’s director of marketing and community engagement. “We can’t wait to welcome everyone back for what will surely be a summer to remember.”

Performances by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Emerson Drive, Harlequin, and a variety of other great acts are just a few of the acts scheduled. Movies include “Frozen,” “Skyfall,” and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
