A total of four films will be shown on a 40-foot screen on the theatre stage on specified summer nights when musical productions are not scheduled.

Films will begin between 8:30 and 8:45 p.m., depending on sunset, and the cost is only $1 per person. Gates open on movie nights at 7:30 p.m.

Other upcoming movies include:

  • Sing on June 20 
  • Pitch Perfect on July 18
  • Finding Dory on Aug. 1

With the sole exception of “Pitch Perfect;” which is rated PG-13, all films are rated PG. For more about this year’s film lineup, including ratings information, go to www.theatreinthepark.org/movies.

Please note that the theatre’s usual rain-out policy does not apply to movie nights. Due to licensing restrictions, if a movie has to be cancelled due to inclement weather, no refunds will be issued and no tickets will be revalidated.

The Theatre in the Park is located north of the main entrance to Shawnee Mission Park with a separate entrance at 7710 Renner Road, Shawnee.
