 Love is All Around this holiday season … so break out your most festive holiday sweater, share a wintery evening under the stars at Paramount Ranch and immerse yourself in the pitfalls of love in its many guises during the 'noughties in London (and the U.S. - for those who know the story!) at a Date Night Drive-In screening of the British cult favorite “Love Actually,” SAT., DEC. 11,
6:30-10:00 p.m.
Arrive early, tailgate with your favorite picnic dinner and book a cinematic history walking tour of Paramount Ranch with movie expert Mike Malone. Vintage Paramount Ranch prints, popcorn and raffle tickets will be available for cash sale on-site. Gates open at 4:30 p.m. NPS Superintendent David Szymanski will discuss fundraising and campaign milestones reached this year.
Admission Tickets ($35/car) will only be available for advance purchase starting MON., NOV. 1,
12:00 p.m. Proceeds from event sales will go to Santa Monica Mountains Fund to support the restoration of Paramount Ranch. Paramount Ranch is a National Park Service site located in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area at 2903 Cornell Road, Agoura Hills, CA.
“Love Actually” is a delightful 2003 romantic comedy set against the London backdrop of aged has-been rock star Billy Mack's (Bill Nighy) Christmas-themed comeback cover of "Love Is All Around," which he knows is not dazzling (and makes no bones about it) as a host of Londoners (and a few Americans!) toil in hilarious, interrelated romantic love stories in winter. The all-star ensemble cast includes Bill Nighy, Keira Knightley, Dame Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant, and Colin Firth, among many others.
Paramount Ranch was established in the 1920’s as a moviemaking studio where dozens of early film classics were created. Over the next ten decades, the property evolved into a thriving film & television production site and beloved community event & recreation space that was destroyed in the 2018 Woolsey Fire.
Funds raised will help SAMO Fund provide the money help complete the $12m restoration project being managed by NPS. Donations will be matched
1:1 by the Federal Government up to $500k.
This event is co-sponsored by Rick Hollman, The Morgan Stanley Lakewood Group, CR Print and Aviara Realty.
