Great American Movie Musicals at the Sunken Gardens


Great American Movie Musicals

The Courthouse Sunken Gardens will literally be alive with The Sound of Music this summer when they host the annual free movie series. Copresented by UCSB’s Arts & Lectures, the series is themed Over the Rainbow: Great American Movie Musicals, and as such its lineup includes seven must-see classics: Singin’ in the Rain, The Wizard of Oz, West Side Story, An American in Paris, Mary Poppins, the aforementioned The Sound of Music, and Cabaret. For your evening under the stars, be sure to bring blankets or low-back chairs to sit upon. (You can claim your spot on the lawn at 10am, and the screenings begin at 8:30pm.) Feel free to also bring snacks or even a picnic dinner. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the best songs, dances, and stories in movie history. The free films screen at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens. (All of the films also screen for free Wednesdays at 7:30pm at UCSB’s Isla Vista Theater.) For more information, call 893-3535 or see arts andlectures.sa.ucsb.edu.
