Tonight we decided to head over to one of the local parks that are showing free movies on a large screen.

I've heard about these movies that are shown all over this summer.  Some are at the beach, some are in parks and some are even down the street from us at the Orange County Preforming Arts Center.

I've never been to one though.

We got there early so we could get a good seat and eat the dinner we brought with us.

They had an area set up to take photos.  It was a backdrop and blow up guitars. 

This sort of gives you a hint to the movie we saw.  Can you guess what it was?

Before the movie started, a local dance group came up and danced to a few of the numbers in the movie.  It was really cute.

Once it got dark outside, everywhere you looked seemed to glow from the glow sticks/necklaces they handed out.

They also tossed out a few free t-shirts.  Trinity one one and put it on to help keep her warm.

Even though it's the middle of the summer and most of the country is in a heat wave, we have been lucky to have nice days and the evenings cool off. 

Since we were pretty close to the beach, it got down right chilly.

OK, here is a big hint about the movie.  I bet most of you can guess what it was now.  Right?

Yes, it was Grease.  I've always loved this movie and it was even more fun watching it tonight with a lot of fans.  Everyone was singing and dancing in their seats. 

I really had a blast.  It was sort of like when I was younger and would go to drive in movies, only better.

I'm sure this is only the first of many outdoor movies I'll be seeing.

How about you?  Have you gone to any outdoor community movies in your area?

We've had these downtown in the big city of Toronto even! They've been showing classics, like "Singing in the Rain" and "The Wizard of Oz". Looks like you all had a great time!

This looks like fun! We bought a dvd projector a few years ago and a big screen and show movies in the yard. The neighbors usually come by and make it a party.
