- Chairs and blankets are welcome. No umbrellas, please.

- 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.
In this thrilling continuation of the epic space opera, ex-stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega), scrappy desert dweller Rey (Daisy Ridley), and droid companion BB-8 get caught up in a galactic war when they come across a map containing the whereabouts of the vanished Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). They soon embark on an epic adventure that brings them face-to-face with heroes from the past, as well as new villains such as Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order, a fascist regime that has emerged from the ashes of the old Empire. Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels return to reprise their roles as, respectively, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and C-3PO. Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Gwendoline Christie co-star.
"'The Force Awakens' is the 'Star Wars' movie fans have been waiting for, lo these many years... As much a restoration as it is a reboot of a cherished movie franchise, it's the first return trip to that galaxy far, far away since at least 1983 that requires no excuses or apologies. It's a complete pleasure to behold from start to finish: from the familiar scene-setting scroll—this time pulling us into the story's central mystery and quest—to the final triumphant notes of John Williams' classic score. 'The Force Awakens' isn't just one the finest movies of 2015, it's the best movie of the year, full stop."
Visit our newest movie night sponsor, Whole Foods on Cerrillos Road, just across the street from the Railyard Park. Pick up a picnic to enjoy on the grass as the movie rolls under the stars on the Park's Performance lawn!
