The Carlsbad Village Association is pleased to announce Flicks at the Fountain 2018, a series of weekly family-fun films that show behind the Village’s prominent fountain on the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue. Each summer, the free movies make their big screen debut on the Thursday following 4th of July and continue each Thursday evening at dusk until the second Thursday in August. 

Adults and kids alike can bring their low-backed chairs and blankets, snag a cozy spot and enjoy some free family entertainment under the stars. For those looking to have their dinner al fresco, choose from a variety of options, including bringing a picnic spread or purchasing to-go meals from one of the many eateries nearby. Consider having a pizza delivered to your seat!  So cozy-up, unwind and enjoy the best of Carlsbad Village this summer.

Where: The Fountain parking lot at Grand Avenue and State Street
When: Thursday nights July (5, 12, 19, 26) and August (2 and 9)
Start Time: Films begin at dusk, or around 8 p.m. Seating begins at 6 p.m.  In July as the sun sets later, movies will start a little after 8pm and in August as the sun sets earlier, movies will start closer to 7:45pm.

We want to thank our 2018 sponsors including our very generous Title Sponsor, Seacoast Exclusive Properties, as well as all of our movie sponsors - Dancin' Soul Boutique, the UPS Store of Carlsbad Village, Paradise Pizza, Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream, Viz Art Ink Gallery, and Beach City Smoothies. We couldn't host this free event without your help and the support of the City of Carlsbad.
