Free Movie Mondays Return to Segerstrom Center, 7/9-8/6
Segerstrom Center for the Arts' free Movie Mondays are a perennially popular tradition in Orange County.
This summer, the sixth year of Movie Mondays, Segerstrom Center will screen five great films on the Arts Plaza: Billy Elliot, the coming-of-age story about an English coal miner's son who dreams of being a ballet dancer; the classic An American in Paris featuring a score by George and Ira Gershwin and starring Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron and Oscar Levant; Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas being presented in partnership with public radio station KCRW-Santa Monica (89.9 FM and www.KCRW.com); Yentl starring the incomparable Barbra Streisand and the musical comedy The Music Man with Robert Preston and Shirley Jones, which was chosen as the Audience Favorite in an on-line poll by last summer's attendees.
Guests are encouraged to bring beach chairs or other easily portable seating items. Set-up begins at 5:30 p.m. with the movie starting at dusk (approximately 8 p.m.).
