Movies By The Pier



Parks and Recreation presents “Zootopia” Saturday, September 17, at the Pier Amphitheater, located south of the Junior Seau Beach Recreation Center and Oceanside Pier. Come and see this 2006 film that details the unlikely partnership between a rabbit police officer and a red fox con artist as they uncover a conspiracy that involves the disappearance of predator civilians within a mammalian utopia. Movie starts at dark, so come early to set up your own “Movie Theater.” Bring your blankets and picnic dinners and spend your evening with family, friends, and Parks and Recreation under the night sky. This is a FREE, family-friendly event.
