The Carlsbad Village Association and Army and Navy Academy are bringing the public a free outdoor movie series entitled Carlsbad Village's Cinema Under The Stars. The four night series will be shown on the largest outdoor movie screen in the western United States. The screen measures 52 feet wide and over 4 stories tall. All four events will take place at Army and Navy Academy's Maffuci Field, located at 2605 Carlsbad Boulevard in Carlsbad, CA. Films will be shown at 8pm on consecutive Friday and Saturday nights September 18 and 19 and September 25 and 26. The Dark Knight & Iron Man will kick off the series' opening weekend followed by Night at the Museum II & Slumdog Millionaire to close the series.
The event is being sponsored by a variety of local businesses and vendors in order to offer this family friendly event at no charge to the public. Audiences are encouraged to arrive early and bring their own chairs and blankets. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be allowed on the premises. Vendors will also be onsite selling everything from candy and popcorn to Mexican street tacos and pizza. Locals are encouraged to go green by riding their bicycles to the field. A bicycle valet service will be available for a small charge.
All three of the event's partners hope to see Carlsbad Village's Cinema Under the Stars become an annual event, and preliminary talks for a series in 2010 have already begun.В If you live nearby, make sure to join in on all the fun!
