Don’t Miss 2019’s Summer Moonlight & Movies

While catching a flick may not seem like the ideal activity for a visit to Grand Cayman, this annual outdoor event provides a chance for families to wind down after warm and adventurous days. With ample time to bond and relax under the Cayman moonlight, this event is just the recharge needed for another day of island exploration.
Camana Bay’s annual Summer Moonlight & Movies event is back every Tuesday night throughout June, July, and August. It’s your chance to gather with family and other neighbors of the Cayman community to unwind under the stars with a fun, kid-friendly flick.
The films will be hosted at Gardenia Court all summer starting each Tuesday night at 7 pm. The Road to El Dorado kickstarts 2019’s series on June 21st, with Curious George closing it out on August 30th. Other films you can catch before fall include animated adventure-comedy Puss in Boots, stop-motion fantasy comedy The Boxtrolls, Steve Carrell’s and Wanda Sykes’ comic-inspired Over the Hedge, and 1980s classic Back to the Future. All films are rated PG-13 or under making this stress-free night fit for almost everyone.
For extra fun, on the first Tuesday of each month bring the kids early for a Kiddie Drive-In. Children can create and customize their own cardboard car and park it in front of the big screen for a unique experience. These cardboard car crafts start at 5 pm with all supplies provided giving the kid’s a unique and classic movie-viewing adventure.
Before the show, families are encouraged to dine at Camana Bay’s diverse restaurants which offer up options such as tapas, pizza, Asian-inspired dishes, organic and vegan items, and other gourmet delights. For the grown-ups, craft beers and cocktails are available at many dining locations. And don’t forget to stop for some gelato or French pastries for dessert. Movie-goers looking for a cozier evening are also invited to bring their own picnic to munch throughout the show.
The event’s organizer, Rosa DaCosta, urges folks to join in on the fun, saying “it’s a great opportunity for the community to come to Camana Bay, the restaurants are quite busy, it brings people here to Camana Bay where it’s a safe place to be.”
Be sure to arrive early with your blankets to grab a comfy spot on the lawn as seating is first-come, first-serve. On a quiet Tuesday around the island, this free event is sure to fill up quickly.
And don’t stray too far at summer’s end. Special film screenings will kick back into gear for Halloween and Christmas.
