A Step Into the Past at Del Mar

March 05, 2018

You don’t have to search far to travel back in time while visiting Santa Cruz. This well established city out numbers many other towns along the coast and has great attractions all over that show its age. Stop by the Del Mar Theatre and get a true 1930’s film experience. Del Mar opened their doors in August 1936 and has been a local hotspot ever since. Their midnight showings, indie films and retro cinema-feel have people coming back time and time again. 

Stop by for a matinee and munch on some of the untraditional snacks like vegan brownies and organic popcorn, a wonderful twist on the otherwise average movie theater snack fare. If you are a night owl and prefer to watch the local screenings by moonlight, be sure to head to a midnight viewing — a Santa Cruz favorite. Make your way to the movies and feel like you’re stepping almost a century backwards.

Thank You
