Comments Off on Bernalillo County Free Movies in the Park

Here’s a great free Albuquerque film series this summer, providing the perfect excuse to enjoy a picnic while watching family-friendly free movies in the park.

The Bernalillo County Free Movies in the Park 2013 series runs on various Friday and Saturday evenings until September 20, at different outdoor locations around town.

The next free Movies in the Park dates are:

June 1 – The Amazing Spider Man with Andrew Garfield in the title role
June 7 – Les Miserables featuring a slew of unhappy French people played by a star-studded cast including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Anne Hathaway
June 8 – ParaNorman, an animated film featuring a boy who tackles ghosts, zombies and (even worse) grown-ups to save his home town from a centuries-old curse
June 14 – The Pursuit of Happyness starring the fantabulous Will Smith
June 15 – Hotel Transylvania with a fresh take on Dracula in this animated movie voiced by Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, and others.

The schedule may change, and the movies start at dusk at different locations each time, so check out the full Bernalillo County Free Movies in the Park program.

It’s fine to take blankets, lawn chairs, and coolers with a picnic, but no alcohol. In previous years any other beverages also had to be in a sealed (unopened) container, just in case you were spiking your orange juice with vodka :-) Now, would we ever do that?

Take note: All outdoor movies are weather-permitting.

Free Movies Under the Stars at Angel Fire

Comments Off on Free Movies Under the Stars at Angel Fire

If you’re looking for something fun to do that won’t break the bank this weekend, check out this fab event taking place at Angel Fire!

Every Friday night in July (2009), Angel Fire Resort offers “Movies Under the Stars“. You can enjoy recent movies on the golf course, plus food, drinks, prizes, and surprises! And it’s all FREE.

This Friday, July 10, you can see Iron Man, starring Robert Downey, Jr. We’re not usually too big on superhero movies, but we thought Iron Man absolutely rocked! Great entertainment!

Angel Fire provides the 50-foot inflatable movie screen, movie-style surround sound, pleasant turf to sit on, parking, and popcorn for free. You’re invited to bring your family, friends, lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets. Note that alcoholic beverages may not be brought into the venue (pursuant to NM state law), but refreshing brewskis will be available for purchase. Other concessions also will be available, including barbecue, snacks, soft drinks, and candy. It’ll be like the drive-in, only without the cars!

Angel Fire is only about a three-hour drive from Albuquerque, so you can simply duck out of work a little early on Friday afternoon and make it to the resort in plenty of time to catch the show, which begins at dark. Check out these lodging deals to complete your cheap getaway.

As we said, all movies start showing at dark. In case of last-minute weather cancellations or venue changes, call the Angel Fire Resort Hotel at 575-377-6401.

Angel Fire Resort is located, naturally enough, in Angel Fire, NM, just east of Taos. Check out this map with driving directions.
