Dive-In Movies July 20

Kids, parents and even some grandparents enjoyed the cool Marana Pool at Ora Mae Harn Park in 2013.

Tucson is under an excessive heat warning all weekend which makes getting out of the house tricky. We have five ideas that involve either: being submerged in water after the sun goes down or soothed by sweet, sweet air-conditioning.


1. Dive In Movie “Goosebumps” — Ott Family YMCA, 401 S. Prudence Road. Food, music, swim time and movie under the stars. 6-9 p.m. Friday, June 17. $3 per person; $15 family maximum. 885-2317.

2. The Sandlot at the Loft Cinema3233 E. Speedway Blvd., $6, Friday, 10 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. and 10 p.m.


3. Cool Summer Nights - Full Moon Festival at The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, 2021 N. Kinney Rd. Free for members. Admission is free for kids under 3, $ for kids ages 3-12 and $15.50-20 for everyone else. Saturday, June 18 5-10 p.m. Live music, improv, arts and crafts

Cool Summer Nights at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum take place on Saturdays through September 3. Catch the museum's creatures at night and maybe a star or two. 

4. Triple Threat Roller Derby, Saturday, June 18, 6 p.m. at Tucson Indoor Sports Center, 1065 W. Grant Rd.

Sandy Russell, 49, or Pistol Whip-Her, wipes her brow after her first match. To find players, local league founder Suzi Berrie says she enlisted former Tucson Roller Derby members, sent messages on Facebook to every female friend she thought had the guts, and blanketed Craigslist with want ads.

Three kinds of derby, Tucson Derby Brats, the Saddletramps (Tucson's international travel team) will battle each other and the Arizona Men's Derby makes a rare appearance. Food and drink available. $15 at the door. Presale: kids under 10 are free with the purchase of an adult ticket, kids 11-17 $5, adults are $10

5. Wildcats in the College World Series — The UA faces Miami at 5 p.m. (Tucson time) on Saturday, June 18. The game is in Omaha but if you can't be there, it's on ESPN2 or 1290-AM.
