Free Films on Civic Plaza: Civic Cinema

Enjoy an outdoor movie viewing experience like no other with Civic Cinema — classic films shown on a giant screen on Civic Plaza! This should be a cool, fun, free family event.

On Friday, June 26 (2009), grab the kids and the popcorn to enjoy a free movie, West Side Story, under the stars downtown. It’s the classic musical about the Sharks and the Jets: the story of Romeo and Juliet set in the 1950s gang era, when all gang members spontaneously broke into choreographed dance routines. Entertainment for the whole family!

The city will provide seating and tables, so you’re free to bring a picnic (no glass containers or alcohol), but you’re welcome to bring your own blankets and chairs if you so desire. Heck you can even bring Fido, as long as he’s leashed.

The movie will start at approximately 9:00pm, depending on darkness. Ah, it brings back memories of the old drive-in days, doesn’t it?

The screening itself is free, but expect to pay for parking.

Civic Plaza is located in the heart of downtown Albuquerque, at Third St NW and Marquette Ave NW.
