Placeholder Image
The “big screen” is coming to Northgate Park this Saturday.

For the first time ever, Manteca’s free Movies in the Park summer series will take place at the park at Northgate Drive and Hoyt Lane in North Manteca.

Sandra Bullock in “The Blind Side” is Saturday’s movie that follows live music by “We are Family” that starts at 7 p.m.

The July 31 movie also takes place at Northgate Park. The featured film is Jackie Chan’s “The Spy next Door.” Prior to that, the “Name that Song” game show takes place.

There is no charge for any of the entertainment. There will be booths offering movie staples such as water, sodas, popcorn, candy, hot dogs and such. Prices are meant to be affordable with soda and water, for example, costing one dollar. Those attending have the option of bringing their own food and drinks.

Those attending also are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs to the event being staged by DeCristo Productions. Helping offset expenses are sponsors Phil Waterford’s Manteca Ford, South San Joaquin Irrigation District, and Bill Broughton Farmers Insurance.

Those attending the Movies in the Park are not permitted to bring alcoholic beverages as coolers and bags may be checked.

Leashed dogs are welcome in designated areas with some restrictions applying.

Children under 16 must have adult supervision.

DeCristo Productions has staged outdoor movie presentations for a fee for apartment complexes and other gatherings. More information is available by calling 922-2673.
