An inflatable big-screen projector will be set up behind Dress Barn in Citrus Heights Saturday night, as the Citrus Town Center hosts a showing of “The Nut Job” cartoon — the final film to be shown during its summer “Outdoor Movie Series” this year.
“Bring the family and enjoy a Citrus Heights night under the stars,” reads a flier for the event, which also highlights free popcorn, raffle prizes and music will be supplied at the family-friendly event.
The PG-rated film features the voices of Brendan Fraser, Liam Neeson and Katherine Heigal, and opened in January of this year, enjoying a moderate turn-out by audiences around the country before being released on video several months ago.
The final of five outdoor films shown this year, the 85-minute movie is scheduled to begin around 8:20 p.m., depending on when it gets dark, but organizers say people usually start arriving around 7:30 p.m. to enjoy some “pre-movie entertainment” and save a seat.
Although plastic chairs will be provided, organizers welcome attendees to bring their own chairs, small coolers and drinks — as long as there’s no glass or alcohol. They also recommend bringing a blanket if planning to sit on the ground, as the venue is on cement.
The “Outdoor Movie Series” is one of many activities the Citrus Town Center sponsors throughout the year, as part of its goal to foster a “community feel” for the neighborhood shopping center. In 2012, the former “Sunrise Festival Shopping Center” finalized its nearly $4 million remodel, featuring new landscaping, store frontages, outdoor seating areas, and a prominently displayed new name at the corner of Greenback Lane and Sunrise Avenue.
If you plan to go:
Date: Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014
Time: Approx. 8:20 p.m., or when dark.
