Find all the wonderful things to do in the beautiful Santa Barbara area communities through my tours around town (including Goleta, Summerland, Carpinteria, Montecito and the Santa Ynez Valley.

On Thursday, families and friends enjoyed a movie night at the outdoor drive-in theater as part of UCSB Arts & Lectures’ film screenings. The in-car entertainment is a new attraction for some locals.
“My friend is going out of town tomorrow, so we thought this would be a fun thing to do,” Linda Sessler said. “We have never tried it.”
UCSB Arts & Lectures is offering free drive-in cinema screenings through mid-December at the drive-in theater at 907 S. Kellogg Ave. The film series will feature Selena, Lady Bird, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Spare Parts, Inception, Whale Rider, Yesterday, Cinnamon, Elf and It’s a Wonderful Life.
The organization is planning to show double features once a week through Dec. 16, and most events feature a lineup of two different films, with a few exceptions. Gates open 1½ hours before the first film.
The drive-in attraction is making a big comeback amid the COVID-19 public health crisis, and more than half of the outside venue was filled for Thursday’s movie. It’s a chance to come together as a community while following the latest public guidance on the coronavirus.
