Cine al Fresco

June 13, 2009

6x4 FNP horizontalI am a huge fan of free public activies in general – just seeing all my fellow San Franciscans out enjoying our community gives me a thrill.  And nothing is more fun than free movies in the park – a picnic dinner under the stars and snuggling those you love under a blanket while you watch a favorite movie. . . it’s like a modern urban campfire. 

At least two organizations offer movies in San Francisco every summer:  The San Francisco Neighborhood Theater Foundation (http://www.sfneighborhoodtheater.org/) and Dolores Park Move Night (http://www.DoloresParkMovie.org).  Both are non-profits and could use your support.  Last year there was a third organization, Alamo Square Movie Night that seems to be no longer functioning.  Stefan and I attended several and think it’s perhaps because it was a tad too chilly for anyone but die-hards like us. )

You can generally count on my family planning to attend, so if you ever want to join us, just let me know.  Here’s what I know about the schedules:
