Movies in the Park: Speed
Find activities and events that will help you do good, feel good and spread positivity in our community.
Every Friday night in July, the Cordillera International Film Festival (CIFF) heads to Wingfield Park to celebrate the best in film. While the Northern Nevada based festival is honoring the 24-year tradition of bringing well-known classics to downtown Reno, they programmed a few surprises. The unexpected gems will be short films that screen before the feature length movies, and the “Secret Screening” that takes place on the last Friday in July.
This year’s schedule is a delightful blend of action-packed thrill rides, quirky cult classics and inspiring dramas. Movies start at 9:00 p.m., with movie-themed competitions taking place between 8:30 and 9:00 p.m. Weekly winners will receive tickets to the Cordillera International Film Festival, taking place July 25-28, 2019.
On Friday, July 5, the crowd can rev up their engines and cheer on Keanu Reeves & Sandra Bullock as they race a bus to save lives in the movie Speed. Before the movie starts, attendees will be invited to race around the park wearing bus costumes.
Movies in the Park is a free, non-ticketed event. Attendees are encouraged to pack a blanket or low-backed chair and bring a friend for a fun-filled evening under the stars. In addition to complimentary popcorn provided by The Outlets at Legends, they can grab a bite to eat from a variety of food trucks, purchase a movie-themed craft beer or cocktail and even pick up a tasty treat at the dessert booth.
