UCSB Arts & Lectures (A&L) cruises back to the drive-in this fall with an eclectic mix of films that offers something for everyone, from tiny tots to college kids and beyond. A&L at the Drive-In selections include: Family Fun!; Student Picks (with curatorial input from UCSB students); ¡Viva el Cine!, presented in association with ¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! (Viva); and more! A&L at the Drive-In films screen from Tues., Oct. 13 - Wed., Dec. 16 at the West Wind Drive-In in Santa Barbara. All films are FREE. Each night features two screenings. Most nights feature a lineup of two different films with a few exceptions. Film start times are 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. before Daylight Savings and 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. after Daylight Savings. First come, first served. Gates open an hour and a half before the first film. Arrive early to enjoy food trucks, concessions and entertainment from your car!

A&L solicited input from partners in Viva, UCSB students and others to ensure that these films will appeal across the Santa Barbara community, whether you are young, young at heart, or just enjoy seeing a visually-stunning sci-fi thriller on the big screen.  

Filmgoers are asked to respect the safety of fellow attendees: Please wear masks and maintain a distance of six feet from others.
