The Del Mar Foundation is reimagining the Cinema By The Sea movie series this summer. Communities all over the country host movies in the park, but only in Del Mar can you view a movie on the beach! This year, we will be showing films that will appeal to every segment of our community – not just the youngest among us.
For the past two years, the Foundation has hosted the Cinema By The Sea at Shores Park, complete with a full-length, family friendly feature and free popcorn. This year, we’re shaking things up by moving this popular series to the beach, along with free popcorn, a short opening short film from Pixar for the kids, and some extra special treats from the lifeguards.
The fun kicks off at sunset on Saturday, May 19, at the 17th Street Lifeguard Station, when we will feature one of the great summer movies of all time – Weekend At Bernie’s. As an added bonus, the lifeguards will be on hand to provide tours of the lifeguard station, which should appeal to kids of all ages.
The fun doesn’t end there. Be sure to mark your calendars for the Friday, June 15th showing of The Princess Bride, and prepare for July 4 with the Friday, June 29th viewing of Independence Day at Powerhouse Park. Both films will include a Pixar Short prior to the feature and free popcorn.
Cinema By The Sea is another free program to the community that would not be possible without our volunteers, donors and sponsors. For more information about the movies, or to find out how you can get involved with the Foundation, please check out our website (delmarfoundation.org), like us on facebook (@delmarfoundation), or follow us on twitter (@delmarfound). And be sure to get down to the beach early on May 19, while the popcorn lasts!
