Here’s what movies you can see at the Everett waterfront this summer

From blockbusters like “Top Gun: Maverick” and cult classics like “The Goonies,” there’s a little bit for everyone at Boxcar Park.

EVERETT — This summer’s Sail-in Cinema at the Everett port features a little bit for everyone, from kids’ fare to blockbusters to cult classics.

The eighth annual free outdoor movie series at Boxcar Park kicks off July 21, with “Lyle, Lyle Crocodile,” a musical comedy for kids starring Javier Bardem and Constance Wu released last year. That’s followed by five more movies over the next five Fridays:

• 9:10 p.m. July 28: “Top Gun: Maverick,” the critically acclaimed sequel starring Tom Cruise that made nearly $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office and was nominated for six Academy Awards;

• 9 p.m. Aug. 4: “The Goonies,” the beloved 1980s kids adventure set in Astoria, Oregon;

• 8:45 p.m. Aug. 11: “Lightyear,” last year’s spinoff from Pixar’s “Toy Story” series;

• 8:35 p.m. Aug. 18: “Clueless,” the 1990s coming-of-age comedy starring Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd;

• 8:20 p.m. Aug. 25: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the 2016 fantasy film that served as a prequel to the “Harry Potter” series.

All of the movies set to be shown on the 40-foot screen are rated PG or PG-13.

The movies can be seen by land or sea, with low-back chairs dotting the park and sailors watching aboard their boats. Moorage is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis at the port’s North Guest Dock 7, with Dock 6 no longer available.

Those on land should pack their low-back chairs, blankets and layers to keep warm. Showings could be canceled in the event of inclement weather.

Boxcar Park, at Millwright Loop West, will open an hour before showtime.

Everett won’t be the only place to see outdoor movies in Snohomish County this summer.

On five Saturdays in July and August, you can see some of the most popular movies of the last couple years at Jennings Park Pavilion in Marysville.

Elsewhere, Blue Fox Drive-In on Whidbey Island shows new movies and Marymoor Park in Redmond is set for eight films this summer, including this year’s Best Picture winner, “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”
