Sound & Cinema continues on Wednesday, Aug. 20 at the Long Center with a free screening of “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and a performance from The Octopus Project. The fun starts around 6 pm and will continue until about 10:30 pm.
Food trucks will be setup on the Long Center Terrace and along the west side of the venue and will open at 6 pm. Vendors include Garbo’s Lobster Rolls, Frank Hotdogs, Yeti Frozen Custard, Boomerang’s Meat Pies, The Peached Tortilla, Whole Foods and Uncle Louie G’s Italian Ice.
Music from the The Octopus Project will start at 7:30 pm and will play until around 8:30 pm. “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” will screen shortly afterward, once it gets dark.
St. David’s Foundation will have a booth set up on the terrace and they’re asking for you to stop by if you have a story about your experience at any St. David’s hospital. They’ll be handing out giveaways and filming people sharing their St. David’s stories, and you can enter to win a gift card to Whole Foods Market! More info here.
Arrive early go get a good spot, the event gets pretty packed by 8 pm. The Long Center lawn provides plenty of room to play around with the kids before everything starts to help them from getting antsy. Bring games or a ball to throw around if you’d like! Attendees are welcome to bring folding chairs (but will have to sit toward the back), blankets and personal coolers with non-alcoholic beverages. Please do not bring pets, glass containers or alcohol.
The event is totally free to attend. Parking at the Long Center garage costs $7 cash or credit. There will be a car2go Drop Zone out front where you can park your car2go for free. Most vendors take credit cards, but bring cash just in case. Do512 Family will be set up with some fun stuff for the kids, along with our awesome “Little Weirdo” shirts that we’re selling for just $5! Check out pictures of our last event here, here and here.
See ya there!
