Segerstrom Center for the Arts kicks off its 2017 Movie Mondays series with beloved movies from five decades: 1961’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s on July 10, 1978’s The Wiz on July 17, 1988’s Stand and Deliver on July 24, 1990’s Edward Scissorhands on July 31 and 2003’s School of Rock on August 7. The showings are FREE, and, for the first time, the Center will provide closed captioning. Movie Mondays is one of Orange County’s most popular summertime events, with its fun-filled activities, picnic dinners, popular food trucks and the five fan-favorite films on consecutive Mondays.
FREE Summer Film features include:
- Breakfast at Tiffany’s – July 10
- The Wiz – July 17
- Stand and Deliver – July 24
- Edward Scissorhands – July 31
- School of Rock – August 7
The Center’s Julianne and George Argyros Plaza, where the films have been shown for the past 11 years, is currently undergoing construction and a dramatic transformation. This year, the films will be shown on the lawn next to the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, which is the site for the new Orange County Museum of Art. Families, friends and fans from all over the Southland are encouraged to arrive early for Movie Mondays, claiming their spaces and enjoying early dinners, music and people- watching. Set-up begins at 5:30 p.m., with movies starting at dusk (approximately 8 p.m.). Guests may bring beach chairs or other easily portable seating items, snacks and picnic suppers. Each Monday will feature different food trucks serving culinary sensations. Barbecues and similar food preparation are not permitted, and, due to space limitations this year, guests are asked to not bring tables. Prior to shows, there will be audience participation events.
Kia Motors America, the Center’s Official Automotive Partner, will be at Movie Mondays each week with fun games and prizes. The Center applauds Macy’s, sponsor of Movie Mondays July 10 opening night, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
