  • 77th Street between Juniper Valley Road and Gray Street;
  • 75th Street between 66th Drive and Juniper Valley Road;

Movies Under The Stars

Next Tuesday, July 3rd, is movie night and it’s 100% FREE!

From 8pm-10pm, Juniper Valley Park will be showing the classic Edward Scissorhands film.

A little bit about the movie:

A fantastic modern day suburban fairy tale. Edward’s unconventional charm is soon discovered as he styles hair, gardens and grooms dogs with the shears of metal where his fingers should have been.

Plan ahead:

  • Arrive early to secure a good spot
  • Bring a blanket to sit on and a sweater if it gets chilly out
  • There are limited amounts of chairs to sit on
  • There are no reservations, it is first-come first-served!

Everyone is welcome! Enter through the 78th street entrance.
