Pack a picnic, bring a friend and settle in for a night of premier Hollywood movies. This year's theme: Bicycles!
The featured movie of the night will be Quicksilver (1986). Jack Casey (played by Kevin Bacon) used to be a hot-shot stock market whiz kid. After a disastrous professional decision, his life in the fast lane is over. He loses his nerve and joins a speed delivery firm that relies on bicycles to avoid traffic jams of San Francisco. He is attracted to a fellow bicycler, Terri, and befriends Hector, a budding entrepreneur. Can Jack regain his nerve and self-respect, and rebuild his life on a more sound basis?
Movies Under the Stars is sponsored by Schwinn Bicycles and Us Weekly!
The film will begin when it is dark enough to see the image on the screen which is dependent on the sunset, generally around 8:30pm. Seating opens at 6:30, and is first come first serve and people can 'save' chairs. Chairs (about 300 of them) and front of chairs ground seating normally fill by 7:30pm. Front ground seating is for blankets/butts on ground (the pier is hard made of pavers), low beach chairs only allowed against the North pier railing. Ground seating behind our chairs, or bring your own chair seating is available after our seats fill.
