The band shell had its first Concert in the Park this weekend– and that means Movies by the Bay are on their way.
Yesterday, Movies by the Bay, the group which puts on the free film screenings at the band shell, released their line-up of movies for Summer 2017. The season kicks off Friday, June 23rd at dusk with the classic 1950’s musical throwback GREASE (lightning, ohhh Grease lightning…)
The rest of their summer season is as follows:
- The ‘Burbs (July 17th)
- Beauty and the Beast (animated version) (July 28th)
- The Goonies (August 4th)
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (August 25th)
- Viewer’s Choice (September 1st)
Each movie begins at dusk, which at the beginning of summer is scheduled around 9:30 pm. All screenings are free and open to the public.
Bring a blanket and enjoy some cinema under the stars!
