With warm weather finally here and Summer Term underway, many locals are looking forward to fun and relaxing summer activities. CSUN is rolling out the big screen for a perennial favorite on campus: Associated Students (AS) Productions’ free Summer Movie Fest, featuring summer blockbusters, nostalgic classics and beloved family films.

The free outdoor films show weekly on Thursdays at the University Library Lawn, starting  June 6 with the original “Back to the Future.” Students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members can attend for free — although campus parking rules are in effect. 

Activities start at 6 p.m., and the screenings start at dusk — approximately 7:45 to 8 p.m. Picnics, low lawn chairs and well-behaved dogs on leash welcome.

There will be various food trucks, photo booths, lawn games and activities themed around the movie of the week (for each week’s food truck offerings, follow @csunas on Instagram). “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” night will feature a pool noodle “lightsaber” station (duel your friends!), and a life-sized Barbie box photobooth will be camera-ready for the “Barbie” showing.
