Summer Movies in the Park

May 17, 2008

Every summer my family and I really enjoy the outdoor movies that are offered by a few different groups.  The first one of these is TONIGHT in Dolores Park.  Dolores Park forms a natural ampitheater with a direct downtown view for a backdrop.  As I sit on the grass watching the movie with my burrito and Elvis (my son) on my lap, I always think, “It just doesn’t get any better than this.” 

There are several organizations who put these on.  Info on the two smaller and less organized ones can be found at and  These are informal, sponsor free movie night organizations where a private party just bought the equipment and puts this on.  A bigger, sponsored effort is put out by the San Francisco Neighborhood Theater Foundation.  In fact, another Paragon Realtor, Jim Fisher, is a sponsor.  Go Jim!  More info on this organization here and their schedule is below.  We will be there tonight, so give a call if you’d like to join us!
