Join UCSB Arts & Lectures for The Spy Who Loved Me, the sixth film in their free summer film series, 007: Bond, James Bond! This year’s summer series features eight James Bond classics, starting in 1962 with Dr. No, starring Sean Connery, through 2012’s Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig. There are two opportunities to catch this week’s film. Moviegoers can attend the screening on Wednesday, August 9, at 7:30 p.m. at UCSB Campbell Hall and Friday, August 11, at 8:30 p.m. at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Garden.
The Spy Who Loved Me is action packed and a must see Bond flick! Leading superspy James Bond (played by Roger Moore) teams up with alluring Soviet counterpart, Major Anya Amasova, to battle megalomaniac shipping magnate Karl Stromberg when British and Russian nuclear submarines go missing. Stromberg is intent on destroying New York City and creating an undersea kingdom! Bond’s globe-trotting assignment has him skiing off cliffs, driving a car deep underwater and battling Jaws, a seven-foot giant with terrifying steel teeth. Featuring sleek style, menacing villains and sly wit, this film begins with one of the most iconic opening scenes of all time.
This film series is fun and free entertainment for family and friends! Courthouse filmgoers are encouraged to bring blankets, low-back beach chairs, and a picnic dinner. Filmgoers may begin setting up on the lawn at noon on Fridays. Arrive early to find the best spots for what has become a favorite Santa Barbara summer pastime!
This film series is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures & Santa Barbara County Office of Arts & Culture.
