We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Friday Flicks

Friday, June 5-Friday, July 17



Seven weeks plus seven family-friendly films at seven different Salt Lake City parks equals seven Friday Night Flicks of free fun! Say that seven times fast. Beginning June 5 at Liberty Park, Journey to the Center of the Earth kicks off the seven weeks of free flicks; last summer’s film stars Brendan Fraser and Josh Hutcherson in an uncle-and-nephew adventure into a lost world.

Arrive early to snatch your 3D glasses. Screened on a gigantic inflatable screen, the selections this year vary from something old to something new. Recent releases like Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa and The Tale of Despereaux alternate with classic films like The Wizard of Oz and Superman.

Pile the kids into the minivan, stock up on Junior Mints and drive the family to a night of casual entertainment. Or snag a special someone for a romantic cheap-date night. Bring the inside out and enjoy a free movie under a blanket of stars.
