Walter Mencken 8 a.m., July 30
Free Outdoor Screening of Avatar Saturday Night
It's going to be a perfect night to get lost in a long movie under the stars.
The Liberty Station website lists the TRT of tonight's installment of Summer Movie Mania as 5 to 10 pm.
Is that with or without the feature? Isn't Avatar something like 5 hours long?
The family-friendly pre-show commences at 5 pm with the movie expected to hit the screen close to 8 pm. I believe we'll be projecting the 178 min. extended cut (on Blu-ray!). If that's the case, you won't hit the parking lot until around 11.
Avatar will screen at Liberty Station's South Promenade, 2850 Roosevelt Rd, San Diego, CA 92106. We had close to 800 in attendance for last month's open-air showing of Top Gun, so you are advised to arrive early with blankets, coolers, and lawn furniture in tow. There will be on-site concessions for sale, but unlike multiplexes, we encourage you to bring outside food and beverages. Just make sure to police the area for trash before you leave. You don't want to set a bad example for the kids.
Summer Movie Mania returns next month with Toy Story 3. Watch the skies!
