“The Box Trolls” is the first of four August movies at The Theatre in the Park
POSTED: 07/08/2015
An Aug. 4 screening of “The Box Trolls” is the first of four movies being shown during August as part of The Theatre in the Park’s summer Movies in the Park program.

Through this program, a total of eight films will be shown on a 40-foot screen on the theatre stage on specified summer nights when musical productions are not scheduled. Films screen every other Tuesday during the theatre’s regular season, and then move to Saturday nights once the theatre’s summer season ends on Aug. 8. Films will begin between 8:30 and 8:45 p.m., depending on sunset, and the cost is only $1 per person. Gates open on movie nights at 7:30 p.m.

August movies include: an Aug. 4 showing of “The Box Trolls;” an Aug. 15 showing of “Paddington;” an Aug. 29 showing of the animated musical “Strange Magic” from earlier this year. The movie scheduled for Aug. 22 is yet to be announced.

All of these films are rated PG. For more about this year’s film lineup, including ratings information, go to This year’s Movies in the Park presentations are sponsored by Capitol Federal.

Please note that the theatre’s usual rain-out policy does not apply to movie nights. Due to licensing restrictions, if a movie has to be cancelled due to inclement weather, no refunds will be issued and no tickets will be revalidated.

The Theatre in the Park is located north of the main entrance to Shawnee Mission Park with a separate entrance at 7710 Renner Road in Shawnee.
