Harris County Precinct 4 presents its annual Summer Movie Nights series, featuring a free outdoor screening of a movie at a local park, beginning June 16. Unlike previous years, guests must call to reserve a space to ensure social distancing can take place at the event.

Reservations can be made by calling 713-274-4050, and visitors can check in with a staff member upon arriving, said Crystal Simmons, the media relations and communications specialist for Precinct 4, in an email. Areas measuring 6 by 6 feet will be marked off for guests to choose from. Check-in for each event begins at 7 p.m.

Movie titles vary by month with "Little Mermaid" showing in June, "Monsters, Inc." showing in July and "Shrek" showing in August, according to Precinct 4 information.

In addition to a movie, guests can purchase ice cream and snow cones, but no other snacks or drinks will be provided. Craft packs will also be handed out, but guests should bring markers or crayons, glue sticks and scissors for the craft, Simmons said.

Guests are also asked to bring something to sit on, such as blankets or chairs that fit within the 6-by-6-foot space, and are encouraged to bring their own water and snacks, Simmons said.


The schedule includes movie screenings at parks across Precinct 4 in June, July and August:

  • Bane Park, 9600 W. Little York Road, Houston: June 16, July 14 and Aug. 4

  • Matzke Park, 13110 Jones Road, Houston: June 17, July 15 and Aug. 5
