(Los Alamitos, CA)— Join the Los Alamitos Recreation & Community Services Department and the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Arts Commission for our second of four Summer Music & Movies event series on Saturday, July 8th at Little Cottonwood Park – located on Farquhar Ave and Bloomfield. Live music will begin at 6:30pm featuring the band, Elm Street, with the movie to follow beginning at dusk.
Elm Street is a four-piece band that was started by lead guitarist Roger Douglas, and includes Roland Misajon on lead vocals, John Navratil on drums, and Bob Hirschhorn on bass and spirit. They have been referred to as “The World’s Greatest Garage/Surf Band” and were written up in the Long Beach Press-Telegram as “the soundtrack for the City of Long Beach, playing at events all over town.” They specialize in classic rock music and have been performing for audiences all over Southern California since 1988.
After the band, the movie for the night is the live action adaptation “The Jungle Book” (rated PG). In this revamp of the classic tale, a young boy named Mowgli is orphaned in the jungle. He’s taken in by Bagheera the panther, and raised by Raksha, as mother wolf, alongside her cubs. Mowgli lives a peaceful life alongside the many animals of the jungle, but as he grows older, Shere Khan the tiger, who hates all mankind, threatens the boy’s life. It becomes increasingly clear to his friends that Mowgli should live in the “man village.” Although Mowgli’s journey begins with his staunch protector Bagheera, they are soon separated. Luckily, Mowgli meets a carefree bear named Baloo and gets advice from him before being kidnapped by King Louie, the King of Apes. Mowgli fights against villains such as Shere Khan and Kaa the snake and ultimately decides for himself what his future will be.
In addition to the music and movie, Domino’s Pizza, Coda’s Kettle Corn, Crepes Bonaparte and a snack booth will be on-site to serve your food needs. Bring out your family and friends and spend an evening listening to great music, playing games, making crafts and watching a movie outdoors under the stars!
