Give your wallet a break and mark your calendar for Glendale’s Fall Movie by Moonlight series, beginning Sept. 28, which offers free screenings of family-friendly Hollywood blockbusters plus music and activities to make a fun evening out for the whole gang.
The Movies by Moonlight series features a new element this year.

Food will be available for purchase, along with face painting and a balloon artist at a small cost. In addition, the movie locations will rotate all over the city for the fall series, to visit parks in all areas of Glendale.
