This Friday we challenge the draconian Santa Cruz laws prohibiting the nighttime use of nearly all outdoor public space.  Only in America would we think to close public gathering places after dark. In other countries, public spaces are where people spend their evenings, hanging out with friends, flirting, playing, drinking, singing, dancing. If we want to maintain a healthy connected community, we are going to have to draw people away from their televisions out of the malls into the night, to public places where people can talk and picnic and dance and look at the stars.

The Matrix or Minority Report


Challenging the laws that make public space off limits after sunset, we return to our controversial spot under the Soquel Bridge. We're showing a huge blockbuster with the hope of enticing large numbers of moviegoers. Our two choices are Minority Report and The Matrix, but we can't decide between them, so it may be viewer's choice. Note, if there is anything even remotely resembling a tie, the host will cast the deciding vote, and she is definitely voting for The Matrix.

Friday July 6th, 8:30 pm
Soquel Ave Bridge, Santa Cruz
(Where Soquel Avenue crosses the San Lorenzo River
by the Royal Taj Indian Restaurant)


PLUS thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, and great company.


BRING lawn chairs, blankets, pillows, friends, wine, & food to share for intermission. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the project. (We are currently saving to get a spare projector bulb.)


SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theater under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.

URBAN WASTELAND LOCATION:  Soquel Ave runs from downtown Pacific Ave east, over the San Lorenzo River.  We are on the east bank under the bridge down by the river.
