See A Drive-In Double Feature For Free!

By Chris Narloch

In addition to the lower housing costs, one of my favorite aspects of living in Rancho Cordova is its proximity to the last drive-in movie theater in the Sacramento area, and one of the last in California. (Only several hundred drive-in theaters remain in the entire United States.)

So I am especially pleased to announce that the West Wind Sacramento 6 Drive-in in Rancho Cordova will be having their annual Free Movie Night this Thursday, September 13th, 2018.

If you were lucky enough to score tickets to Sam Smith’s sold-out show at Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center last Friday evening, Aug. 24, then you already know that Mr. Smith and Beth Ditto performed the California capital’s queer concert of the year.

Both artists are openly gay, and Ms. Ditto provided a ferociously soulful opening set that ranged from an impressive cover of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” – which she dedicated to the late Aretha Franklin -- to the 37-year-old singer’s own songs, which fuse soul, dance, and rock music to wonderful effect.

If you can get to Sacramento’s Esquire IMAX Theatre on K Street before it ends this Thursday, Aug. 23, I recommend you check out the new movie “Alpha,” a stunning big screen adventure about a young hunter who befriends an injured wolf during the Ice Age.

Presented in IMAX 3D, and set 20,000 years ago, “Alpha” is a feast for the senses that includes terrific music, gorgeous cinematography, superb performances, and a family-friendly plot.
