Cox introduced the Movies in the Park summer series in 2003 with a projector and a re-purposed bed sheet. Since that time, Movies in the Park has grown and has now become a community favorite across Pima and Cochise Counties. Cox invites area residents to bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy a free movie. Food vendors, live music, jumping castles, and arts and crafts exhibits will be set up for guests to enjoy. Unique activities will be highlighted and will rotate each week including community demonstrations, special guest appearances and fun activities for children. The event will also include food trucks to provide movie snacks throughout the showing.
