‘Manufacturing Stoke’ headlines 2012 outdoor movie nights at Del Mar Shores Park

The third annual Del Mar Shores Cinema Series returns the first weekend after Labor Day (Friday and Saturday, Sept. 7-8) for two free movie nights at Del Mar Shores Park (9th St. and Stratford Ct.).

“Our board, volunteers and film committee have worked tirelessly to bring thought-provoking and inspiring ocean-themed films – and the creative minds behind them – to our community,” said Friends of Del Mar Parks President Joe Sullivan.

This year, the Cinema Series kicks off Sept. 7 at sunset (around 7:30 p.m.) with a trio of award-winning surf films, Abroad/Salmon Theory/Manufacturing Stoke, an unflinching and timely look at the surf industry today, with a special guest appearances by the filmmakers and founders of the San Diego Surf Film Festival.

The Sept. 8 marquee kicks off with Amazing Jellies (official selection: San Francisco Ocean Film Festival), followed by Willem & The Whales, a look at a world without whales told through the eyes of a child. The feature presentation will be Universal Pictures’ Big Miracle, starring Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski.

While the Cinema Series is free to the public, Friends of Del Mar Parks emphasize the need for modest community support to cover basic costs and volunteer needs. VIP seating with lawn chairs and picnic baskets, as well as wine and cheese baskets and movie treats, can be purchased and reserved online at delmarshores.org, with all proceeds supporting the Friends of Del Mar Parks’ mission to acquire, preserve, and support recreational and educational open spaces in the Del Mar area.

“Now in our third year, the Cinema Series is truly and uniquely Del Mar. Where else can you enjoy free thought-provoking films against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean and the stars above? Bring a picnic, bring a blanket, even bring your dog, and don’t miss our best year ever,” said series co-founder and Del Mar resident Ian Leggat.

All information on the Cinema Series—including the full schedule, film trailers, VIP reservations and participating food trucks —can be found at delmarshores.org and on Facebook (www.facebook.com/DelMarCinema). Come early, bring a blanket, beach chair and picnic.
