The City of Yuma Parks and Recreation invites families to enjoy an enchanting evening under the stars at the next Dive-In Movie Night

YUMA, Arizona (KYMA, KECY) – Movie night is the perfect Father’s Day weekend event to enjoy with your kids.

The 2023 version of The Little Mermaid will be performed on Saturday, June 15 at sunset at Marcus Pool, 545 W. 5.th St.

Admission is free for all ages. Gates open at 7pm. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis, with a maximum capacity of 300 people.

AJ Mosqueda, recreation officer for the city of Yuma, says the movie can also be enjoyed from the pool.

“You can be in the water the whole time. Go out, cool off with the light breeze and go back in,” Mosqueda says. “So the whole family is welcome and you can see we have parents sitting on the deck in our lounge chairs just sitting there. They can see their kids, they can see the video. We’re going to be fully staffed.”

Lifeguards will be present.

You can bring your own personal swimming aid in the form of a life jacket.

“It has to be approved by the U.S. Coast Guard, OK. And if anyone is unsure, if you open your jacket, you will find very detailed information on the back,” Mosqueda explains. “But you will see that it is approved by the U.S. Coast Guard, and those are the ones we approve.”

Families are allowed to bring their own snacks and drinks, but some items are prohibited.

“You can bring your cooler, of course. If you’re a pizza family, if you’re a sub family, if you want to pick something up from a restaurant around the corner that everyone on 4th Avenue uses, you can do that. We just ask that you don’t bring glass because that’s a safety issue. First of all, we can’t see glass in the pool and you have a lot of bare feet on the deck. So no glass, no alcohol, no smoking or vaping,” says Mosqueda.

The next performance is “Finding Nemo” on Saturday, July 13th.
