2011 Summer Schedule

Since 2002 · 150 films · 13 locations

2011 Summer Schedule

An outdoor movie theater under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great free movies year-round and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is reclaiming public space and transforming our urban environment.

PLUS thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, and great company.

BRING blankets, pillows, friends, drink, & snacks to share for intermission. Donations to support the project are more than welcome.


They Live

8:30 pm June 24th

Part science fiction horror and part dark comedy. The ruling class within the moneyed elite are in fact aliens who have hypnotized the populace through subliminal messages transmitted via mass media. One man joins the underground to eradicate the lizard-like aliens, which are revealed when he looks through special Ray-Bans developed by the resistance.

Location: Debois St., Harvey West Park area

The China Syndrome

8:30 pm July 29th

Journalists discover safety cover-ups at a nuclear power plant (in California), during an earthquake. Whoa!!! Risking their jobs and their lives, they attempt to expose the truth. This 1979 suspense-drama was nominated for 4 Academy Awards.

Location: The Green Station, corner of Ocean & Soquel Ave.


8 pm Aug. 26th

The modern day classic: In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind. Location: Beach Flats Community Garden

The Big Lebowski

8 pm Sept. 30th

"Dude" Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his urine-stained rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help retrieve it.

Location: TBA (check website for update)

The Fly vs. The Fly

8 pm Oct. 28th

The Fly (1958) vs. The Fly (1986) projected simultaneously. In the 1958 version, Andre, a scientist working on teleportation, accidentally merges his own atoms with those of a fly. He winds up with the fly's head and arm, and the fly winds up with Andre's head and arm. Croenberg's The Fly (1986) is more of a re-conceptualization than a remake. It deals with themes of disfigurement, the darker aspects of human emotions and behavior, and a doomed love affair.

Location: to be announced
