The popular Disney-Pixar animated film “Cars” will be shown tonight at Palmdale’s Family Movie Nights at the Palmdale Amphitheater, 2723 Rancho Vista Blvd.

Tickets for Family Movie Nights are $4, with kids 12 years and under admitted free (accompanied by a parent or adult guardian). Parking is free. Ticket booths open at 5 pm. The gates open at 6 pm and movies will start at dusk. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. Moviegoers may bring a picnic dinner and non-alcoholic beverages to Family Movie Nights. Snack vendors will be on-site.

Free family activities featuring a “bubble blast” will be available from 6 to 8 p.m. while supplies last. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite movie character.

Featuring the voices of Richard Petty, Michael Keaton, Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Paul Newman, George Carlin and Larry the Cable Guy, Disney Pixar’s “Cars” brings automobiles to life in this fun-filled adventure. While traveling to California to race against The King and Chick Hicks for the Piston Cup Championship, Lightning McQueen gets lost after falling out of his trailer in a rundown town called Radiator Springs. While there, he slowly befriends the town’s odd residents, including Sally, Doc Hudson and tow truck Mater. When it comes time for him to leave, the championship is no longer his top priority. “Cars” is rated G. The popularity of the movie would lead to the “Cars Land” attraction at Disney California Adventure in Anaheim.

“Here’s an opportunity for a perfect night out with the family,” said Palmdale’s Director of Recreation and Culture Keri Smith. “Bring your blanket, chairs, a picnic dinner and take advantage of our gorgeous summer evenings at the beautiful Palmdale Amphitheater while watching some of the best family movies ever made.”

The animated version of “Beauty and the Beast” will be shown on Aug. 11. For more details, call (661) 267-5611 or visit www.PalmdaleAmphitheater.com.
