All films shown are rated PG, and will be shown in digital projection and digital surround sound in the main auditorium at the Del Oro Theatre.

This summer the series will benefit The Gold Country YMCA. The Gold Country YMCA’s Summer Day Camp at Memorial Park, a partnership with the City of Grass Valley, offers curriculum that revolves around the YMCA values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Camp serves children entering Kindergarten through 6th grades in Monday-Friday sessions, running 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., including lunch.

The ninth Annual Series is presented with support from four community sponsors: The Book Seller, Nevada County Fairgrounds, Prosperity Lanes, and Gold Country Gymnastics.

Advanced tickets and series passes can be purchased at the Del Oro Box Office. Arrangements can be made for school groups, summer camps, and daycares. For more information, call the Del Oro Theatre at 530-272-1646 or the Sierra Theaters Business Office at 530-477-1100.
