If there was any worry that 14 years was too long for Pixar to wait before releasing a sequel to The Incredibles, the 2004 film about a family of undercover superheroes, that uncertainty was obliterated last month, when Incredibles 2 hit the big screen and delivered a record-shattering $180 million opening weekend and $544 million to date.

​For those that want a refresher on the original or simply can’t get enough of the Parr family, Frozone and the criminals that keep them busy, the 2018 Mill Valley Movies in the Park series has you covered. The Incredibles is the next film up in the series of free, ever-popular outdoor screenings in the gorgeous redwood grove of Old Mill Park

Seating is general admission, and attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and/or low beach chair. The main feature begins at sunset, in this case approximately 8:15pm.

After an incredibly successful fundraising campaign to raise enough money to purchase all of the equipment required to produce the series on their own – propelled by a $5,000 grant from the Outdoor Art Club – Mill Valley Recreation, the Mill Valley Chamber and the California Film Institute have made the movie series bigger and better than ever. The 2018 Movies in the Park series now stretches across five screenings from June through October.

The series continues on Sept. 7 with The Lion King, the massive 1994 hit that will be followed up in 2019 with a live action version starring Beyonce and Donald Glover, and Oct. 5 with 2016’s Zootopia, which will screen during the opening weekend of the 41st Mill Valley Film Festival
