While centered around the movie, which is free, there are lots of things to do, including a Bounce N Play for children and vendors selling snacks.

The series continues with “Despicable Me 2” on July 18 and the final movie of the summer season “Back to the Future” on Aug. 8.

Consult the website for rating information. Even though all of the movies are rated PG, some movies are not appropriate for all audiences.
