Topanga Nights 2008 -- Movies Under the Stars

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty - Malibu | Topanga CalBRE #01409242

Topanga summer nights are a mix of cooling breezes, singing frogs, and wandering coyotes.  This Sunday, July 20, you can throw a movie and picnic into that scene for Topanga Nights

Topanga Nights 

Dianne Porchia has once again put together two nights to gather up on the Topanga Community House Ballfield to hear music, eat and share a good movie.  This fundraiser will benefit the Topanga Community Club.

This week's entertainment lineup features slide guitar blues by Jimmy Lee as well as the rock-blues groove of Jim Crawford and The Hot Toddies. Brother to the Night will be the DJ before the movie.

This week's Movie -- Men In Black

 

Bring a picnic, a blanket, and the entire family to dance and laugh the evening away. 

Gates open at 5:30 p.m. for a your brought-from-home picnic and entertainment.

The movie starts at approximately 8:15 p.m. with the event ending at 10 p.m.

Topanga Community House Ballfield,
1440 North Topanga Canyon Boulevard

Bring a jacket, a flashlight for walking to your car. No pets, glass bottles, large coolers, or tall chairs with straight legs (which poke into the soccer lawn) are permitted.

The suggested donation is $10 for adults, and $7 for teens and seniors; children 12 and under are free. Limited parking is available on the premises for $5 per car.

Would you like to be an angel and help? Contact Dianne Porchia.

More information about the events can be found online at the Topanga Nights website

SAVE THE DATE -- August 17th -- Topanga Nights movie will be Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Elaine, that sounds lovely! I loved that movie. Great fun. They also filmed parts of it in my neck of the woods, Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Cool!

The long awaited Topanga Nights movies are here!  Wish I could be there to sit on a blanket under the stars with you, Twin :)   Of course, then I might have to listen to Paul's shrieking kids.  Is there wine?

Mmm... I've really need to get out of state more... I'm thinking Noah the Noble and Stephen the Destroyer would be great entertainment for Paul's little pookies. With my minions around, they'd be too busy to shriek. :-)

Isn't this great? Southport started a family movie night once a month. They could do it every week and people would come. It's right across from the City pier on the Waterfront so the atmosphere is wonderful.

Thanks fro sharing.

Lisa - I'd share my wine with you!  The kids would be adorable and you know it!

Danny - It's one of those movies I never get tired of watching.

C - Your minions sound quite intriguing.  I have a feeling that with your's and Paul's together, the show would not be on the movie screen.

Vicki - That does sound great.  People are always trying to find a nice place to take the kids and this would be perfect.

Amanda - It's weird being away from the Rain for a few days!  We had fun, but I am glad to be back.

I love outdoor gatherings like this. We have outdoor movies at a park in downtown Columbia in the Fall. Take care.

What a great night!  Yes, the first thing I thought of was "ya'll better bring some bug spray" as mentioned by Jeremy...the second thing I thought of was "can you bring booze beverages!"  Hope you had a fantastic evening and made lots of money for the cause!

Sounds like TONS OF FUN!!!  Jefferson Day allows NO alcoholic beverages, which is the New Jersey way.
