Drive In Movie Free - By UCSB

 


UCSB Arts & Lectures - Game On! Grit, Grace & Glory

Wed, Aug 26 / 8:30 PM

West Wind Drive-in / FREE


In West London, 18-year-old girls Jess (Parminder Nagra) and Jules (Keira Knightley) dream of playing professional soccer like their idol David Beckham. But Jess' Sikh parents have more conventional plans – a law degree and marriage – while Jules' mother wishes for a daughter more interested in boys than soccer. With a cast including Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Archie Panjabi and Juliet Stevenson, Bend it Like Beckham is a hilarious comedy about friendship and family that will have you cheering from the sideline! (Gurinder Chadha, 2002, PG-13, 112 min.) 

Gates open at 7:00 PM. First come, first served. 

Arrive early to enjoy food trucks, concessions and entertainment!

Socially-distanced parking with room to put chairs in front of your car. Please respect the safety of fellow attendees: wear masks and maintain a distance of six feet from others.


Premier Sponsor:

Montecito Bank & Trust

Presented in association with the City of Goleta, UCSB Athletics, Carpinteria Movies in the Park and the Santa Barbara County Office of Arts & Culture

Santa Botanic Garden is Open to Visitors.

Here is information about visiting The Garden during the COVID time.  All information and photo is from the Botanic Garden Website and Newsletter.


Visiting the Garden

The Garden is now open to guests, every day from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Members may arrive early for Members-Only hour 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. every day that the Garden is open. Not a member yet? Join today! 

How This Works 

  • Please enter through the Garden's parking lot, where you will be greeted by Garden staff and directed to a parking spot.

  • Park, pay for admission or show your proof of membership at our admission kiosk, maintain 6-foot social distancing protocols, keep your mask on, and enjoy the Garden!

  • No one will be admitted without a face mask. 

What to Expect

  • Bring your own water. Water fountains have been turned off. Please prepare for hot weather; it’s better to carry too much water than not enough.

  • Many high-touch and narrowly-spaced features are closed temporarily. Closures include Garden Casitas, the Children’s Centennial Maze, tables, chairs, and some of our small, narrow trails. Some narrow trails will have one-way traffic only. 

  • No interior spaces are open at this time including the Pritzlaff Conservation Center. The retail Nursery is closed.

  • Bathrooms are available behind the admission kiosk.

  • Gates will close at 5 PM each day.

Keeping Us All Healthy

  • If you are sick, please stay home.

  • All visitors over the age of 2 must wear a face covering at all times.

  • Leave 6 feet of space between you and others not in your group. 

  • Limit touch! There are plenty of things to hear, see, and smell without touching.

  • Practice good hygiene: wash your hands, refrain from touching your face, and use hand sanitizer often (we have some for you at the admission kiosk!).

  • Stay to the right on trails to allow others to pass. If passing another visitor, please announce yourself. 

  • Please follow our signs; some trails are one-way only. 

The Fine Print

The health and safety of our members, volunteers and staff are our first priorities. Mandates and recommendations from government officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may change our ability to follow this limited opening plan. Despite our stringent cleaning and sanitizing protocols, we cannot control all circumstances.  By entering our premises, you acknowledge that you assume any risks associated with your visit, including but not limited to a risk of injury or illness. If we find that guests are not following appropriate social distancing or other guidelines, we may be forced to completely close again. Please check our website for any changes or updates.

Declaration of Independence

Happy 4th of July
Declaration of Independence

In Congress, July 4, 1776



We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are

created equal, that they are endowed

by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,

that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

 That to secure these rights,

Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just

powers from consent of the governed.
 
That whenever any

form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is

the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute

new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and

organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most

likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
