PHOENIX — Film lovers across the Valley will soon be able to see blockbuster movies for a limited time at the summer series event hosted by the historic Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix.

The theatre, which is located at 3rd Avenue and Adams Street, is kicking off the Summer Blockbuster series on June 25 with its first film and will end the event with the last film showing on July 24, according to the theatre.

The first weekend of the movie event starts Saturday at 6:30 p.m. with “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark,” followed by “Titanic” on Sunday at 3 p.m.

In July, filmgoers will also have the opportunity to see “Frozen,” “Blade Runner” and “Purple Rain.”

Ticket prices to each event ranges from $11 to $16 and can be purchased online.

The film series is a fundraising event used to provide historical, educational and fundraising support for the Orpheum.

Previous fundraising events have allowed the staff at the theatre to invest in assisted listening devices and floral arrangements.

We want to hear from you.
