Costa Mesa’s OC Fair, the 125th annual event this year, has historically attracted more than one million people each summer, making it one of the top-10 largest fairs in the United States. The Fair, complete with mouthwatering food, topsy-turvy rides, fun shopping and over-the-top exhibits and performances, is scheduled to start July 17 and to conclude Aug. 16. The Fair opens Wednesday through Sunday.

Set-up begins at 5:30 p.m., and the movies start at dusk — about 8 p.m — so you have plenty of time to enjoy dinners, music and people watching. Here are the following movies scheduled for showing:
