Guests may set out blankets and chairs anytime after 12 p.m. on movie nights. Low-back chairs are welcome, as are non-synthetic blankets (to help keep the lawn lovely!) People are encouraged to bring jackets as it gets chilly at night.

Please keep in mind that the County is not responsible for any items left unattended on the lawn. We hope to see you there!

(The films also screen indoors on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. at UCSB Campbell Hall.)
