Irvine Spectrum is at the center of summertime

Here’s what’s on tap this season.

Spectrum Center is one of my favorite spots. Here’s what’s on tap this summer.

Fresh Air Fitness

We are always looking for an opportunity to move, and you can do just that this summer with outdoor workout classes hosted by the Irvine Spectrum Center’s fitness brands: Lululemon, Stride and Free People. 8-10 a.m. Saturdays through Sept. 17.


Summer Sundays

Looking for a surefire way to beat the Sunday scaries? Music, games and gathering on the Giant Wheel Lawn can do the trick. 3 -7 p.m. Sundays through August. Movies Under the Stars Grab your favorite take-out and post up with your people for a movie under the stars. From “Moana” to “Spider-Man,” we know family favorites are guaranteed. 7:30 p.m. Sundays through July.


Mojito Mondays

I think we can all agree mojitos make Mondays better. In partnership with Habana, find them served up alongside music and small bites. Tickets needed. 6-8 p.m. Mondays through Aug. 29.


Blockbuster premiere

One of summer’s most anticipated movie premieres, “Thor: Love and Thunder,” comes to the four-story IMAX theater at Regal Irvine Spectrum. The third film in Marvel’s epic series brings Thor out of his self-imposed retirement to take on Gorr, an imposing villain played by Oscar-winner Christian Bale. Premiere on July 8.


Toddlers & Tunes

On the first Tuesday of every month, we like to head to the Giant Wheel Lawn for Toddlers & Tunes. It’s fun to let your littles run wild with friends and watch them enjoy the interactive DJ, games, and more. 10 a.m.-12 p.m. first Tuesdays through October.
