If it’s June, it must be time for OUTDOOR MOVIES!

June 10, 2009

….and they’re starting this week! Both Temescal Street Cinema and Jack London Square’s Waterfront Flicks begin this Thursday, and continue on Thursdays evenings throughout the summer. The meet time for JLS is 7:30 and 8 pm for Temescal, though both movie series officially begin “when it gets dark.” (Which is good, because last year the Oakland Museum tried to do a 7:30 outdoor movie and failed miserably when the glare of the sun made it impossible to see….lesson learned!) Also, Oakbook is running Oakland trivia before the JLS movies, complete with prizes, and the local restaurants there are apparently offering specials and picnic options.

UPDATE, 6/24/09: The Dunsmuir Hellman Historic Estate is also doing a “Fourth Friday” outdoor movie series this summer; their movies cost $5. Gates open at 6 pm and the movies begin at sundown (around 8:30 pm).

UPDATE #2, 7/22/09: Pizzaiolo is back with Wednesday night outdoor movies in July and August! Sit on the back patio and enjoy wine, beer, soda, and pizza by the slice as you watch. Schedule is here.
