Rancho Cucamonga’s Victoria Gardens is bringing back “movies under the stars,” an obviously successful program from last spring in which family friendly movies were shown on a temporary screen in the grassy area known as Chaffey Town Square. Admission is free and the whole thing is like a drive-in without the cars.
A movie will be shown each Tuesday from May 20 to June 17. All are PG. The lineup:
May 20: “Surf’s Up”
May 27: “Bee Movie”
June 3: “Daddy Day Camp”
June 10: “Little Rascals”
June 17: “Shrek the Third”
“Surf’s Up” may be the sleeper of the bunch; it wasn’t that popular at the box office, perhaps due to penguin fatigue, but the people who saw it loved it, and the surfing scenes are said to be pretty impressive.
I saw “Cars” at the VG last year with friends and we had a good time. You’re encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Each movie is preceded by games, activities and prizes. Movies begin at dusk, approximately 8 p.m.
