In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

June movies for Cinema La Placita at TMA Plaza

For those who love to watch movies outdoors, especially classic movies, it’s that time of year again – Cinema La Placita

This summertime tradition kicks off its 19th season of showing classic films in the beautiful plaza of the Tucson Museum of Art.

The move to the Tucson Museum of Art has brought a number of benefits to the event, including the dining at nearby Cafe a la Cart, food trucks and beer and wine available for sale to enjoy during the movie.
