The past few days must have been “sleepless nights” due to the scorching heat. Why don’t we go outside and enjoy movies in a nearby park in Seoul?

Seven parks in central Seoul – World Cup Park, Gyeongui Line Forest Park, Oil Tank Culture Park, Cheonho Park, Junglang Camping Forest, Pureun Arboretum and Seoul Forest – will be offering free movie nights during the latter half of this year.

The “mid-summer night’s family theater,” which will be held at World Cup Park in Mapo-gu marking the 13th anniversary this year, is a representative free outdoors movie program for summer nights in Seoul. From August 3 to 11, four animation movies produced in Korea and abroad will be displayed at 8:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Camping chairs, mobile chairs, and mats will be provided for free.

At the train movie theater at the Gyeonggui Forest Line Park in Yongsan, central Seoul will be playing children’s movie on animals, given that many citizens visit parks and forest along with pets. Before playing the movie, the railway park will be cooperating with “KARA,” an animal protection education organization, to perform a workshop on how to enjoy the park with pets properly and “petiquette.”

Outdoors screening program could be cancelled or its place could be changed upon weather conditions. Details can be confirmed at the homepage of Mountains and Parks of Seoul at “parks.seoul.go.kr” or by calling Seoul City’s Dasan Call Center at 02-120.
