Inauguration hits local theaters

Barack Obama will be the headliner at a number of movie theaters around the San Diego area Tuesday.

Eight UltraStar Theaters in San Diego will have live coverage of the presidential inauguration from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The tickets were free but most theaters have reached capacity, said an UltraStar official.

If UltraStar is at capacity, inauguration watchers can view the ceremonies at six San Diego Public Libraries.

The Malcolm X Branch Library at 5148 Market Street is even featuring performance segments every hour from noon to 7 p.m. Community leaders are expected to stop by throughout the day and there also will be an “open mic” for residents to share their views. Other branches hosting inauguration viewings include Rancho Bernardo, Point Loma and Otay Mesa.

The New Creation Church of San Diego at 3115 Altadenta Ave. is hosting a live viewing. Attendees will also have the opportunity to pray for the safety of Obama and his administration, according to an official.

A number of hotels, including the Hilton San Diego Bayfront at 1 Park Boulevard, are hosting viewing parties with theme-related drink specials like Yes We Can Gimlet, Michelle Muse and Barack Breeze.

The Pearl Hotel at 1410 Rosecrans St. will have a large projection screen just for viewing the inauguration.
