Movies In The Park (MITP) is an annual series of free films in parks across Austin. In 2016, Pease Park Conservancy partnered with the Austin Parks Foundation (APF) and the Alamo Drafthouse to open and close the fall season at Pease Park. Residents and visitors were treated to two classics; Top Gun and The Goonies. Pease Park's big field provided the perfect theater. The Conservancy hosted pre-movie events so visitors could explore and enjoy the park. Prior to Top Gun was a sand volleyball tournament recognizing the infamous scene with Goose & Maverick, and prior to The Goonies was a scavenger hunt throughout the south end of the park.
Back by popular demand, in 2017 we'll be hosting two more MITP at Pease. Same as last year, we'll have food and beverage vendors on site! See you out there!
