Movies Under the Stars!

Jordan Alwood

October is here, which means we’ve got all the best fall festivities for you and the family. However– we’re highlighting a classic event that has brought imagination to life, all while brightening up the Old Sacramento Waterfront. Movies Under the Stars offers a unique experience that is outdoors and gives you time-tested classic movies. You can bring your friends and family and attend an event that is perfect for everyone. We also love this event because many of our restaurants offer deals and discounts for those attending the movies– so you can enjoy a nice meal before the show at a great price!

Let’s get into it!
