This Mission Hills Staple Is Screening Classic Films & New Releases Starting Next Weekend

Cinema Under The Stars is back!

After being closed for several weeks under a statewide stay-at-home order, some local San Diego businesses are now able to reopen their doors. Luckily, that includes outdoor movie theaters. Cinema Under The Stars, a premier outdoor theater in Mission Hills, announced this week on their Facebook page that it will reopen on Friday, February 5, inviting San Diegans to come and enjoy a film al fresco.

The first weekend of reopening will feature Alfred Hitchcock’s 1946 classic, Notorious, starring Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, and Claude Rains. Screenings are scheduled for 8pm on Friday, February 5 and Saturday, February 6. If you’re a Hitchcock fan, this is definitely a thriller you won’t want to miss. 

The following weekend, moviegoers can see Kajillionaire, a crime drama released in 2020 starring Evan Rachel Wood, Richard Curtis and Debra Winger. The film is scheduled for screenings on Friday, February 12 and Saturday, February 13 at 8pm, as well as Sunday, February 14 at 7pm.

And at Cinema Under The Stars, you can expect an extra comfy viewing experience with plenty of movie snacks. The theater, which has a massive 20-foot screen with HD projection and surround sound, has no doubt perfected the outdoor movie experience. The theater takes extra care to make sure that viewers are cozy and comfortable while watching, offering an abundance of seating options, including single & double zero gravity recliners, as well as blankets and space heaters. The theater even has a retractable roof so that the show can go on if the weather goes a little south.


Outside food and drinks are not allowed in the venue, but a variety of drinks, candies and popcorn are available for purchase at the concessions stand for just $2 each. Admission at the box office (open at 6pm) is $18 for non-members (members $17), and online tickets are $20. Online reservations open up on Tuesday, February 2.
