Fresh off the free Movies in the Park 30th anniversary screening of “The Princess Bride,” the series returns August 4 with a free screening of Pixar’s Academy Award-winning Inside Out, which was just named one of the 25 best films of the 21st century by the New York Times.

The free outdoor film series, a collaboration between the Mill Valley Chamber of CommerceMill Valley Recreation and the California Film Institute, kicked off in 2014 as an opportunity to celebrate film in one of the most gorgeous settings in the Bay Area: the redwood grove of Old Mill Park.

The Peter Doctor-directed Inside Out is set in the mind of a young girl named Riley Andersen, where five personified emotions—Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Fear (Bill Hader), and Disgust (Mindy Kaling)—try to lead her through life as her parents (Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan) move from Minnesota to San Francisco and she has to adjust to her new surroundings.

The free film screenings are set in the redwood grove adjacent to the playground in Old Mill Park. Seating is general admission, and attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and/or low beach chair. The film begins at around 15 minutes after sunset, approximately 8:15pm on August 4.

Don’t miss this chance to see amazing films in the beautiful Old Mill Park – FOR FREE! Old Mill Park is at the corner of Throckmorton Avenue and Cascade Drive.
