Join us every other week from June 3-Aug. 26 for free movies in Railyard Park! The Santa Fe Railyard movie series takes place on the beautiful Railyard Park Performance Lawn in the heart of the Railyard Park, located at the intersection of Paseo De Peralta and Cerrillos Rd. Directions and parking info are on the Railyard web site. (You can also download a map [JPG] showing all of the Railyard parking and transportation options.)
- Chairs and blankets are welcome. No umbrellas, please.
- Picnics are welcome but NO ALCOHOL is allowed in City of Santa Fe Parks.
- We'll have food trucks on site! Enjoy fresh NM fusion from Dr. Field Goods, beverages from SoCal Mobile Cafe, and Santa Fe Kettle Corn.
- Well behaved, leashed dogs are ok, but it usually works better to leave your canine companions at home.
Register for the event and we'll send you updates if there are any schedule changes as well as info on future free Railyard programs and events around Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
Please note: unlike other movies in this series, "West Side Story" will be shown on a Saturday, not Friday, night, due to the Best of Santa Fe event on July 29.
This romantic musical update of "Romeo and Juliet" won ten Oscars. The tale of a turf war between rival teenage gangs in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen and the two lovers who cross battle lines has captivated audiences for four decades. The Stephen Sondheim/Leonard Bernstein score is just one of the reasons.
"The dancing is remarkable, and several of the songs have proven themselves by becoming standards, and there are moments of startling power and truth. 'West Side Story' remains a landmark of musical history."
"Nothing short of a cinema masterpiece... The strong blend of drama, dance, and music folds into a rich artistic whole."
—New York Times
