Outdoor movies in RC

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.

    Thanks for the update for “movies under the stars.” Brought the kids out for a few movies last year and they had a great time. Usually makes for a late “school” night and the kids are dragging the next morning, but it’s worth it.

    We rented the movie “Surf’s Up” a while back and everyone in the family gave it a thumbs up.
