Carlsbad plans outdoor movie series

CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad Village Association will end the summer with a free outdoor movie series on what’s billed as the largest outdoor movie screen in the western United States, at 8 p.m. on consecutive Friday and Saturday nights Sept. 18 and Sept. 19 and Sept. 25 and Sept. 26 at Army and Navy Academy’s Maffucci Field, 2605 Carlsbad Blvd.
The Carlsbad Village Association and Army and Navy Academy have partnered with Hollywood Outdoor Movies to bring “Carlsbad Village’s Cinema Under The Stars.” The four-night series will be shown on the Hollywood Outdoor Movies measures 52-feet wide and more than four stories tall.
Sept.18 – “Batman’s The Dark Knight”
Sept.19 – “Iron Man”
Sept.25 – “Night at the Museum 2”
Sept.26 – “Slumdog Millionaire”
The event is being sponsored by a variety of local businesses and vendors in order to offer this family-friendly event at no charge. 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. More information about this year’s series can be found at
