Free outdoor movie screenings return to Liberty Station in Point Loma. May through October coordinators will screen movies on the green the second Saturday of every month. According to organizers, the movies are reflective of the art forms represented by the diverse resident groups in the Arts District. The event aims to also bring more people to this part of Liberty Station, which is home to dozens of open art galleries, studios and museums.
The 2017 series, produced in partnership with Pacific Arts Movement, will feature movies that spotlight the theme of “Heroes of the Arts on Film.” It features the following films:
May 13th "La La Land" (2016) starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone
June 10th "Strictly Ballroom" (1992) starring Australian stars Paul Mercurio and Tara Morice
July 8th "Lego Batman Movie" (2017) starring Will Arnett reprising the voice of Lego Batman
August 12th "Sing" (2016) starring the voice talents of Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson and many more.
September 9th "Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings" (2012) documentary of the ukulele virtuoso Shimabukuro
October 14th "Ghostbusters" (2016 reboot) starring Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon
Before the movies, a short film – experimental, independent or documentary – will screen. This part of the event is curated by Outside the Lens, a local program that teaches youth to use digital media, photography and filmmaking to create social change and advocate for important issues. Those who arrive early to Second Saturday Cinema will also enjoy music and performances highlighting groups in residence at the Arts District.
