Monthly movie nights are coming to Menlo Park. The first screening will be of the 2013 movie, "Frozen," at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 25, at the Arrillaga Recreation Center in the Civic Center at 700 Alma St.
Admission is free to that and other screenings, except for "Ghostbusters" on Oct. 28, when there will be a $5 charge if you left your Halloween costume at home. Those in costume get in free.
This Menlo Park movie series, dubbed "Cinemenlo," is presented by the city's Community Services Department.
Initially, the movies were going to be shown outdoors at Fremont Park. However, so many events are held there that the city wanted to give the park and its neighbors a break, according to Jim Cogan, economic development manager of Menlo Park.
The other screenings are:
● "Rio 2" (2014), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, Arrillaga Recreation Center.
● "Monster University" (2013), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26, Arrillaga Recreation Center.
● "Ghostbusters" (1984), 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the Menlo-Atherton High School Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton. (Attendees are invited to dress in character and act and quote along with the move.)
● "Free Birds" (2013), 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, M-A Performing Arts Center.
● "Elf" (2003), 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 19, M-A Performing Arts Center.
