Santa Clarita Aquatic Center officials are holding the first Dive-In Movie of the summer on Friday.
For $7 per person, attendees can enjoy an outdoor showing of “Monsters University” from the pool or poolside lounge chairs and snack on signature movie food available for purchase from the center, officials said.

“It’s an opportunity for families to hang out at sunset and watch a movie in the pool, and it’s a great way to spend a Friday night,” said Aquatic Supervisor Lance O’Keefe. “We put up a big screen and sound system and we’ve got popcorn for sale.”
Lifeguards will be present for the duration of the night, and while poolside seating is provided, guests can bring their own chairs, inner tubes, noodles or rafts, officials said.
Other PG-rated films being shown as part of the Dive-In Movie series include “Despicable Me 2” on July 25 and “The Smurfs 2” on August 8.
“The city’s Dive-In movies are incredibly popular with the community and continue to attract an ever-increasing number of attendees each year,” said Mayor Laurene Weste. “This year should be no exception, and residents are welcome to take a break from the summer heat and bring the entire family to experience this unique Santa Clarita tradition.”
Center officials strongly encourage residents interested in attending to guarantee their spot by registering in advance online or by calling the center at 661-250-3700.
“It gets pretty packed,” O’Keefe said. “We encourage people to register online to ensure their tickets in case it does sell out. It’s only happened a couple times, but if people want to make sure they get in, they need to go to the city’s website and register.”
