It's one of my favorite summer activities on the Central Coast: Watching a movie under the stars. And tomorrow night, two classic movies are screening outdoors locally.
Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" screens at 8:30 Friday night, under the stars at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. You're welcome to bring a blanket, beach chairs, and a picnic dinner. Admission is free. It's sponsored by UCSB Arts and Lectures.
You can also catch the beach classic "California Dreaming" in Avila Beach Friday night. It was actually shot in Avila and the film's star, Dennis Christopher, will be there!
The 1979 film is the story of a young man from the Mid-West who comes to California to dive into the beach lifestyle and surf culture.
You can watch it outdoors at the Avila Beach Golf Resort. The movie is rated "R" and is restricted to ages 17 and up. The film starts at 8, and you do need tickets.
Bring beach chairs, blankets and warm clothing, but leave the food and drinks at home. It's supposed to be lovely so a great chance to see a film reflecting our local beach culture in a spectacular setting!
