Movies Under the Pines

The Nevada City Film Festival (NCFF), City of Nevada City and the Nevada County Fairgrounds presents Movies Under the Pines, an outdoor cinema experience for the entire family,

Building on the success and excitement of the previous two summer’s screenings of family friendly films at both Pioneer Park in Nevada City and the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley, NCFF has selected six films that both kids and parents will enjoy.

“Movies Under the Pines is one of those endearing and sweet community events that warm your heart.  We wanted this year’s films to reflect that feeling,” says Jesse Locks, Festival Director.  “It is so popular, we have people travel from all over to experience this movie magic in a beautiful outdoor setting,”

This year’s line up includes the cinematic masterpiece The Wizard of Oz, May 20th at the Fairgrounds; Wes Anderson’s endearing coming of age story Moonrise Kingdom, June 4 at Pioneer Park; the Pixar masterpiece Finding Nemo, June 10 at the Fairgrounds; the rousing time-travel adventure Back to the Future on July 8 at the Fairgrounds; Tim Burton’s comic, romantic and haunting film fantasy Edward Scissorhands July 9 at Pioneer Park; and finally concluding with everyone’s favorite The Goonies, August 27 at Pioneer Park.

The film festival brings in state of the art projection and sound to create an outdoor movie theatre on the grass at each venue.   Before each screening NCFF curates a special pre-show that includes screening local filmmakers works, movie trivia with fun festival prizes, and other events specific to each screening.  Last year the Nevada County Fencing Club showed attendees how to fence prior to The Princess Bride and in honor of UP the festival decorated the park festively with multi-colored balloons.

Beer, wine, popcorn, soft drinks, and ice cream available for purchase. Outside food and non-alcoholic drinks allowed. Outside alcoholic beverages prohibited.  Blankets and low back chairs are suggested.

Gates open at 7:30pm for picnicking, films begin at Sunset, which depending on the time of year can be between 8 and 8:30pm.  Tickets $7/General Admission, $5/Children 12 & Under.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.nevadacityfilmfestival.com and will also be available at the gate of each location.
