Flicks at the Fountain in Carlsbad Village 2018

It’s almost officially summer, and that of course means more beautiful weather, lots of tourists, plenty of recreational options, and outdoor movies.

Carlsbad Village will once again host the free Flicks at the Fountain outdoor movie series on 6 successive Thursday nights, beginning July 5 and through August 9.This series is sponsored by the Carlsbad Village Association, among other businesses.

Flicks at the Fountain takes place by the Carlsbad Village fountain near the parking lot, at the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue.

Here’s the full schedule so you can plan to see your favorites, or take them all in (all are rated G or PG except Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but be sure to check out the movies in advance online to see if they are appropriate for your child/children):

July 5 – The Greatest Showman

July 12 – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (rated PG-13)

July 19 – Coco

July 26 – The Neverending Story

August 2 – The Lion King

August 9 – Wonder Woman

You can start getting settled at 6 PM and the movies begin around dusk (a little after 8 PM in July, and around 7:45 in August). Be sure to bring along blankets (you know how it can get chilly in our summer evenings close to the beach), low-backed chairs and food/snacks to enjoy.

Another al fresco dining option is to stop by one of the many local restaurants and vendors in the area, for a take out meal.
