Cinema Stars

Cinema Under The Stars kicked off it’s limited engagement Friday and Saturday night on the Army Navy Academy’s Maffucci Field located at 2605 Carlsbad Boulevard. As any of the 300 people who attended the Saturday, September 19 showing of Ironman will tell you it is a not-to-be-missed event.

Sponsored by a variety of local business and vendors and presented by Hollywood Outdoor Movies, the films are screened on what is being touted as “the West Coast’s largest outdoor movie screen” that measures 52 feet wide and 4 stories tall.

We don’t disagree—it’s basically a huge blow-up, drive-in sized movie screen with amazingly crisp HD splendor. Throw in a quality sound projection system and what that means for Carlsbadistan’s viewers is full, cinema-quality movies right in the Village. Finally.

You still have a chance to see Cinema Under The Stars next weekend September 25-26, 2009). On Friday the feature is Night at the Museum II followed by Slumdog Millionaire on Saturday night. Grab a blanket, pack a picnic, and saddle up the Cruiser—this is the best bike date you’re going have in Carlsbadistan this fall. The lawn opens at 6 PM, and the movies start at 8 PM.
