Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance, Gotta Love the Free Movie Series “The Great American Musical on Film”

Posted on Jul 5 by SEASONS Magazine

Beginning tomorrow night (July 6) and running through August 24, UCSB Arts & Lectures, Santa Barbara County’s Park FoundationSanta Barbara County Arts Commission, and Santa Barbara Film Commission will present free movie screenings of favorite movie musicals on consecutive Wednesdays and Fridays.

First up is Top Hat, the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers classic film which includes Irving Berlin standards like “Isn’t This a Lovely Day” and “Cheek to Cheek.”

Each Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. A&L will host screenings in UCSB’s Campbell Hall and these campus presentations of classic Hollywood musicals from the 1930s through the 1950s are being paired with the “Courthouse Movie Series,” which will host free outdoor showings of the same films, each subsequent Friday evening at 8:30 p.m. at the County Courthouse Sunken Garden.

For each Friday night screening at the Courthouse, Santa Barbara Dance Alliance will present a live dance performance, before each film, to celebrate that night’s movie. This week Derrick Curtis and January Gregov will perform a dance demo followed by lessons and concluding with another dance performance.

How fun is that? And free to boot. Just bring your blankets or low chairs and enjoy a free evening at the Courthouse under the stars.

Here’s the entire summer schedule.
