gardens7621Going to a movie on a Saturday night is a pretty typical thing to do, but catching a movie outside is unusual for most people. Luckily, here in Vegas we have warm summer nights that are perfect for outdoor screenings and CineVegas has taken full advantage of that by hosting “CineVegas Under the Stars” at the Springs Preserve.
The 11th annual CineVegas film festival was held at the Palms last month, but you still have a chance to catch one of the comedies,”Patriotville,” which premiered at the festival.
This 2009 comedy, directed by Talmage Cooley, stars Justin Long as a history museum manager who launches an offensive against a casino development to be built over the town’s historic Revolutionary War battlefield. “Patriotville” is rated PG-13.

The screening will be held at 8 p.m. July 11 in the Springs Preserve’s outdoor amphitheater. Filmgoers are encouraged to bring their own blankets and low chairs to sit on.

The Springs Preserve is a 180-acre cultural and historical attraction that offers fun, educational opportunities for adults and kids alike. The site includes everything from trails and gardens to a children’s play area and exhibits about sustainable living.

Entrance to “Patriotville” is included with regular paid admission to the Springs Preserve before 6 p.m. After 6 p.m., tickets are $5 for adults and children. Concessions will be available in the amphitheater and the Springs Cafe by Wolfgang Puck will be open until 7 p.m.

The eco-friendly Springs Cafe features organic and natural food including tasty options like Puck’s signature Chinois Chicken Salad and a barbecued salmon BLT.
