Flicks at the Fountain – A Reminder

Things to do in Carlsbad

This is just a friendly reminder that the 2022 Flicks at the Fountain return July 7.

Summer is in full swing in Carlsbad, with some pretty nice weather. As a result there are plenty of outdoor activities. Here are a few.

The popular Flicks at the Fountain start in less than 2 weeks on Thursday July 7th. However, this year there are 5 movies, instead of 4. Furthermore, the movies take place on consecutive Thursdays instead of Fridays.

Flicks at the Fountain

The Flicks at the Fountain run from July 7th to August 4th, hosted by the Carlsbad Village Association. The movie titles were decided by popular vote. Here’s the movie schedule:

Encanto – July 7

Goonies – July 14

Sing 2 – July 21

Top Gun – July 28

The Greatest Snowman – August 4

You’ll find the Flicks on the big screen in the parking lot by the Fountain, at the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue. Seating begins at 6 and movies start around dusk. Summer evenings near the beach can be chilly, so bring blankets, and comfortable low-back chairs.

Dine al fresco with food from home while you wait for the movies to start. Or grab take-out at one of the nearby restaurants. Additionally, you can also order pizza, to be delivered to the parking lot!
