Coachella’s spring series of free movies kicks off Friday at Bagdouma Park

COACHELLA – Fridays in May will bring a full lineup of free movies to Coachella for our spring series of Movies in the Park. Beginning Friday, May 5 at 7:30 p.m., family-friendly movies will be presented on a large viewing screen at Bagdouma Park near the volleyball courts. Guests are asked to bring portable folding chairs and blankets. Free popcorn will be provided.

“Movies in the Park offer a wonderful recreational outlet for our community,” Mayor Steven Hernandez said in a statement. “I remember my family not having the resources to go to the theater when I was a kid, and movies in the park was our go-to. We are proud to have this option available to our local families.”

Each Friday will present a different movie for enjoyment, starting with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on May 5 Puss in Boots: The Last Wish on May 12, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile on May 19, and Strange World on May 26.

“What a wonderful way for families and kiddos to share time and make special memories together, and not to mention the health benefits of being outdoors,” Councilmember Denise Delgado said in a statement. “I look forward to seeing everyone out there.”

Movies in the Park is presented by the city of Coachella in partnership with Desert Recreation District. For more information, visit or
