Make it a Date: Movies in the Canyon

By Amanda Marquez


El Paso Live has begun its free movies series every Friday and Saturday night at McKelligon Canyon Amphitheatre. Now students can catch a great movie on a giant screen right as the sunsets, between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. Concessions are available to purchase for just a few bucks. Don’t forget to bring a light jacket or blanket to keep warm with family and friends. Enjoy a night out with friends and family on a budget. The series will run through Oct. 1.


According to, fans voted for favorites like “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “The Jungle Book” and “Brave.” My personal favorites include “Zootopia and “Inside Out.” Anyone with a love for fun, animated movies can go see these two movies and kick off Fall Intersession with a night under the stars.
