New Monthly Outdoor Movie Series to Showcase HIFF Curated Films

First up: an indie documentary on surfing.

As summer heats up in Hawaii, it can be great to disappear into a dark, air-conditioned theater for a couple of hours and gorge on a vat of popcorn. But if you’re looking for something a little more cultured, a little more social, a new monthly outdoor film series might be right up your alley.

A collaboration between Ward Village, the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF) and Consolidated Theaters, Courtyard Cinema will be screening specially curated films the second Thursday of every month in the back of the newly renovated IBM Building at 1240 Ala Moana Blvd. In addition to the movie itself, there’ll be refreshments, activities and special guests related to the theme of the selected film.

The series kicks off this Thursday (June 12, 6 p.m.) with a surf documentary, Bella Vita, which tells the story of surfer/artist Chris Del Moro’s journey back to his ancestral homeland in Italy. Filmmaker Jason Baffa will be available to answer questions afterwards (you could ask him how awesome it is to travel the world surfing and making movies), and we’d imagine the event will also be a good opportunity to run into other surfing free spirits, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Courtyard Cinema screenings are free to attend, but seats are limited, so we recommend snagging tickets online beforehand at wardvillagecourtyardcinema.com.
