Movie Night on the Midway

Two weeks in and summer is in full swing 'round here. There are so many fun things happening in San Diego this summer, including this week's event, Movie Night on the Midway.

Here's the deal: This Thursday, July 3, you are invited to spread out your picnic blankets and folding chairs on the deck of the USS Midway Museum and be treated to a showing of Disney's The Lone Ranger. Doors will open at 7:00pm and the show will start at 8:00pm. It's all part of the Summer Movies in the Park series. For those folks who are new to the area (myself included), all summer long different parks throughout the county will take turns showing family-friendly movies. (More information here.) Thursday's event is the first of two movie nights on the Midway. (Planes will be shown on Friday, August 22.) But! From what I hear, the movie nights on the Midway are particularly pop-u-lar, so show up early and be prepared to hang out in line for a while. (Consider yourself warned.) And feel free to bring snacks. Lots and lots of snacks. (Just, please, no alcohol or glass bottles.)

Movie Night on the Midway is the best of what summer has to offer here in San Diego. And I can't think of a single place I'd rather be.
