Free outdoor presentation of Guardians of the Galaxy in Orange County on March 19

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is coming to theaters this year, and The Frida Cinema is getting fans hyped up with a free outdoor presentation of the first film, Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s a special screening that takes place on Sunday, March 19th, at 7:30pm in Downtown Santa Ana on the rooftop of the 5th & Spurgeon Parking Structure, the lot behind The Frida. Parking at the structure is also free. We can thank the Santa Ana Business Council for the free event.

Here’s the info from Frida Cinema:

Starting at 6pm, take the elevator or stairs up to the 4th Floor Rooftop of the parking lot located at 301 E. 5th Street – accessible off Spurgeon Street between 4th and 5th Streets – get comfy, grab some food at one of our local restaurants, swing by The Frida for your popcorn, candy, and soda needs, then watch Star-Lord and his crew take on the villainous Ronan starting at 7:30pm!

Bring a blanket, towel, LOW-BACK chair, or anything else you need to get comfy and enjoy a movie under the stars! Picnic baskets welcome, though neighboring Wursthaus, 4th Street Market, Taquerias Guadalajara, Kiyomizu Sushi, and so many other great restaurants will be open to get your food needs handled! And again, The Frida Cinema is a hop downstairs for your concessions needs!

Smoking, pets, and alcohol are prohibited at the Parking Structure.

You can park in the same structure the movie’s in! We’re just closing off the top floor for our film, but floors 1 – 3 will be open, as will the 4-story structure on the west side of the lot! Parking is FREE on Sundays! For more info on the Parking Structure, visit

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance!

That depends on YOU! The City of Santa Ana has been extremely supportive of this concept, but they want to see two things: that the event sails by safely and smoothly, and that folks show up. We have no doubt the first will be no problem, but we need you to BE THERE, and to tell all your fellow film and comic book-loving friends about this event! If it’s a hit, we hope to do this monthly!

Santa Ana Business Council is generously sponsoring this event! Thanks SABC!! If we are going to keep this series going, we’ll need more help in the months ahead – email us at [email protected] if you’d like to contribute to seeing more free DTSA Rooftop Cinema events!!

Cheers to our promotional sponsors, Yelp OC, for their enthusiastic support of this event!
