Just because you don’t have the funds or time to take a European vacation this summer, doesn’t mean you can’t have a taste of it right here in the Valley! The prized InterContinental Montelucia Resort & Spa is looking to bring a touch of Europe into our lives with the launch of its new (and FREE) event series, Sunset Cinema. Beginning this Sunday, March 27, the monthly outdoor film series will show classic and contemporary films set in Europe and Morocco, destinations that have inspired the resort’s unique design, architecture and character. Can’t wait!
How does a beloved classic, under the stars in Montelucia’s tranquil setting inspired by the charming courtyards of Andalusia, Spain sound? Sounds like heaven to me! Taking place one Sunday a month, the film series is complimentary and open to both locals and resort guests. Arrive early for a good seats and bring your appetite as Montelucia will also offer a European-inspired menu of cheeses, cured meats, wine, chocolate, Italian coffee, house-made gelato and more. Picnic baskets are also available for purchase!
Movies begin at 7:30 p.m. and seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
