The Marana Parks and Recreation Department is starting its spring schedule for the popular Movie in the Park series. The monthly event returns in February, giving families the opportunity to explore parks around Town while enjoying a movie together.

Since 2007, Marana Parks and Recreation has offered these free events to the community and is excited about the new season. Movies will play the third Saturday every month through May and return in the fall after a summer of Dive-In Movies at the Marana Pool.

All features are rated G or PG and are open to the public. Moviegoers are encouraged to bring families, friends, picnics and pets to the park and enjoy these outdoor movies under the stars.

Spring schedule:

• Feb. 16: “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax,” San Lucas Park at 6:30 p.m.

• March 16: “Madagascar 3,” Continental Ranch Neighborhood Park at 7 p.m.

• April 20: “Over the Hedge,” Ora Mae Harn Park at 7 p.m.

• May 18: “The Little Rascals,” Dove Mountain Park at 7:30 p.m.

These are free, fun family nights out. Grab your blankets or lawn chairs and enjoy the show. Additional information, including park addresses and event flyer, is available at
