First on the lineup is Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” which will air on Aug. 24. Then on Sept. 7, they’ll show “The Greatest Showman” starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams. Grab your lightsaber on Oct. 5 because the event will screen “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” that evening.

Admission to see the movies are free, but there are also activities and food available for purchase before. Food trucks and activities start at 6 p.m. and movies typically begin at dusk, shown on a 30-foot inflatable screen.

This is the 14th year of “Movies by Moonlight.” This year movies will be shown on the city green lawn at 1 Galambos Way.
