Del Mar Theater
Address: Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz, 426-7500. Map Link
Description: The venue has become one the favorite theaters in town, not only for its great selection of independent films, but also for its rich history. You get a genuine “going to the movies” experience at the Del Mar. It’s one of the only big screen theaters still operating in the area. That’s something to savor.

Nickelodeon Theater
Address: 210 Lincoln St., Santa Cruz, 426-7500 Map Link
Description: The Nick, as it’s been nicknamed by locals, is indie movie central. Here you’ll find every foreign language flick your parents wouldn’t let you watch back home. And you’ll also find things like Sundance winners. Grab a tub of popcorn (with light butter, please) and make sure to throw on some yeast. Yes, yeast. Welcome to Nickelodeon Theatres where for years the company has offered yeast on its popcorn. We swear you’ll be addicted to it by the time the movie is over.

Santa Cruz Cinema 9
Address: Pacific Avenue, Santa Cruz, 457-3500 Map Link
Description: Hollywood has a heyday at the 9. The multiplex is the largest in the county, boasting numerous screens, a whole bunch of blockbuster flicks playing at the same time and a full concessions stand. Take note of the great midnight movie offering.

Riverfront Twin Cinemas
155 South River Street Santa Cruz, CA 95060, 429-7252  (800) 326-3264 #1701 Map Link
Description: Can’t find it at Cinema 9. It’ll be at the Riverfront. As a sister theater to Cinema 9, the two companies work hand-in-hand to show off Hollywood’s latest and greatest.

Aptos Cinemas
Address: 122 Rancho Del Mar, Aptos, CA 95003 688-6541 Map Link

How does one find out the price of admission to various local films? Phoning the theatre doesn't work because of the pre-recorded message which does not list the prices?

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
