Many movies are filmed in California State Parks, but not surprising considering how magnificent California State Parks are.

Part of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi was filmed in Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park and Jedidiah Smith Redwoods State Park, and both MASH, the TV series, and the movie were filmed in Malibu Creek State Park.

On Saturday, November 6th, we’re celebrating both–the movies and as well the work of the California Parks Foundation.

Five classic movies that were filmed in CA State Parks will be featured at Paramount Studios on Saturday, and 20th Century Fox Studios on Sunday, as part of the two day Hollywood Films event:

Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi

MASH: The TV series



Planet of the Apes

For tickets, there’s two choices:

So far, the California State Parks Fountain has raised a total of $161 million dollars, so let’s give some extra SoCal love on Saturday–while having a great time too.
