Southern Summer nights are the perfect escape from the hot days, especially when the River Market’s outdoor film series returns to the First Security Amphitheater.

The annual event will begin its 14th season on June 6. Every Wednesday at sundown in June and July, relax and enjoy award-winning films ranging from animated to action for all ages.

It's time to roll out the red picnic blanket because these are seven movies that the whole family is going to love.

Here's the 2018 lineup:

  • June 6: "Wonder Woman" (PG-13)
  • June 13: "Zootopia" (PG)
  • June 20: "School of Rock" (PG-13)
  • June 27: "Sixteen Candles" (PG)
  • July 11: "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (PG-13)
  • July 18: "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" (PG)
  • July 25: "Beauty and the Beast" (2017) (PG)

Families can bring pets and enjoy a picnic (no glass containers) at the park to enjoy movies under the stars. And don't forget the bug spray!

An adult must accompany all children under the age of 18 and an ID is required. The amphitheater will open an hour before film showings and movies with begin at sundown each Wednesday.
