Why is the Del Mar Shores Cinema series so awesome? Because it's about you.

It all started as an idea two years ago by some Del Mar residents much like you, who thought: "Hey, we have this fantastic open park space right in the heart of our community--let's do something cool with it that brings people together." And what's cooler than movies under the stars?

That's how it all got started last year. We had some fun and learned a lot. That's why this year we're doing things a little differently. This year, it's all about you. And it's about our community.

The Del Mar Shores Cinema Series is a free, family, outdoor movie series that celebrates our community's connection with the ocean. The ocean is, after all, our most important neighbor. 

This year's films look closely at the ocean in fun, unexpected but always interesting ways. Surf films for women. Surf films for "old guys." The physics of surfing--how does it actually work? That and so much more.

Cool, right?

Here's how we can make it happen. All we need to make this all a reality is $5,000. (That covers the cost of a screen, A/V, film licensing, labor, supplies, posters and bathrooms.) If everybody kicks in, we can get to our goal pretty quick. If we raise more than $5K, we'll invest it in next year's series, continuing to attract top films and filmmakers to our community.

So that's where you come in. Can you chip in today to kick this off with a bang?

The Cinema Series will take place over two Saturdays-- September 10th and 24th. The films will roll at sunset. Attendees will enjoy feature films, a selection of fantastic short films, as well as special appearances by some of the filmmakers. (Check out www.facebook.com/delmarcinema over the coming days for the full schedule, descriptions and trailers for the films: Dear & Yonder, The Physics of Surfing and The Board Meeting.)
