Grab the kids and a few blankets, it's time to make Julia Davis Park your own giant, outdoor living room.

Movies Under the Stars, presented by the Boise Public Schools Education Foundation, returns this summer with Megamind, a family friendly animated feature about what happens when a super villain takes over the world.

This film pits Megamind (Will Ferrell) against Metro Man (Brad Pitt) in a battle of strength, wits and ultimate dreaminess. Also featured in this PG movie are the voices of Tina Fey, David Cross and Jonah Hill.

The movie begins at dusk but free live music, games and inflatable jump houses will be available before the movie for the whole family to enjoy. Attendees are encouraged to bring snacks from home, although there will be some available for purchase. Blankets are also strongly recommended, along with flashlights and camping chairs.

As for the rest of the summer, Diary of a Wimpy Kid will play on Saturday, July 16, and Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader will play on Saturday, Aug. 20.

This is a family oriented event, so there is no alcohol or tobacco allowed. Parking is free in the Julia Davis lot, along with some auxiliary spots at the Main Library. Pets are not allowed and parents are asked not to leave children unattended.
