(Saturday) July 23, 7:15pm, Lahaina Gateway; free
Last week, we gave you an early heads up about the SUP doco That First Glide, screening at the MACC this Friday (July 22, 7:30pm; $12). If that whet your rods and cones–and you’re looking toward the horizon for a second set–find it at Lahaina Gateway, this Saturday (July 23). The mall’s first-ever Outdoor Movie Night will be inaugurated with a trio of surf flicks, starting at 7:15pm with the PassmoreLabs project The Physics of Surfing (that, like That First Glide, buffs may recall from its debut at the Maui Film Festival), followed by The Path of the Modern Gypsy. The former 26-minute movie studies the science behind surfers’ innate collusion with the sea–in exhilarating high-definition–and the latter follows famed surfers (Rob Machado, Jay “Bottle” Thomson, Paul Fisher, Ben Bourgeois and more) through their enviable sun, sand et al lifestyle in Central America. And, the night’s capped off with a full-length, family-friendly animated movie. (Wanna know what it is? Find out at lahainagateway.com). Keep in mind that no coolers or outside food/drinks are allowed; but to conceive of bringing such things is nonsensical anyhow because you’re surrounded by the likes of Genki Sushi, The Melting Pot, Teddy’s Bigger Burgers, Outback Steakhouse and Barnes & Noble Cafe–never mind the to-go grinds from Foodland Farms. Also, seats are limited to 100 peeps (first come, first serve) and while the Gateway’s got chairs, you can bring your own beach chairs if you’re afraid of ‘okole cooties (or whatever)–and so you don’t have to sit on the ground with your nose near toes.
