POSTED: 05/17/2017
On June 6, a recent animated Disney favorite kicks off a schedule of films planned for the Movies in the Park program this summer at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District’s The Theatre in the Park.

Through this program, a total of four films will be shown on a 40-foot screen on the theater stage on specified summer nights when musical productions are not scheduled. Beginning June 6, films will screen on specific Tuesday nights during the theater’s regular season. 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.

To kick off this year’s program, Disney Animation Studio’s “Moana,” will be shown on June 6, and the Illumination Entertainment movie “Sing” will be shown on June 20. Other movie nights in the series include: a July 18 showing of “Pitch Perfect;” an Aug. 1 showing of Pixar Animation Studio’s “Finding Dory;”

With the sole exception of “Pitch Perfect;” which is Rated PG-13, all of this year’s 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 Shawnee Mission Health.

Please note that the theater’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 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.
