Watching movies under the stars is among my very favorite things that I never get to do. I look at people who have those movie projectors, hang sheets in their backyards, and host movie nights, and jealousy courses through me. But every summer, San Diego, we get our chance because we have Summer Movies in the Park. Holly cow it's crowded, but that means that 1.) someone out there is doing (or has done) a very very good job of marketing it and 2.) it must be worthwhile.
Which brings me to the best Summer Movies in the Park event ever, Movie Night on the Midway. It happens twice a summer. This Friday, July 3 is one of those nights. On Friday, grab your picnic blankets, folding chairs, and favorite snacks and head to the deck of the USS Midway Museum for a special showing of Back to the Future. I thought I saw a DeLorean the other day and I got excited about this event all over again.
Now, a few logistics: Doors will open at 7:00pm and the show will start at 8:00pm. But! From what I hear, the movie nights on the Midway are particularly popular, so show up early and with an extra dose of patience.
And if you can't make it to Movie Night on the Midway this week, it's okay! On Thursday, August 13, you'll get a second chance.
