Academy award nominated motion picture, American Graffiti proved a big hit with the swim suit set who attended the first ever PebbleCreek Dive-In movie. The George Lucas directed comedy, set in the summer of 1962, features a couple of high school grads who spend one final night cruising the strip with their buddies before they go off to college. For these four youths, it’s the closest they will ever get to the Garden of Eden. The music, the cars, the drinking, the dancing and the innocence.
While most of the crowd at the Saturday night screening had seen the movie before, they all claim to have been only grade-schoolers at the time of the movie’s initial release and couldn’t really identify with the characters then like they can now. And by now, of course, our PebbleCreek neighbors have managed all sorts of dilemmas similar to those the characters deal with in the movie—and are living in a Garden of Eden. Not so innocent any longer but still drinking, dancing and watching movies in the pool!
Dive-In movie night, presented by the PebbleCreek Catering Team, runs through the summer. Admission is free for this adults-only event and there is a full-service cash bar along with popcorn and sweet treats available for purchase. Standard pool rules apply, but you are welcome to bring your own pool noodles and chairs. Future Dive-In Movie nights at the new refurbished Tuscany Falls Pool: August 4 Grease, August 18 Smokey and the Bandit, September 1 Dirty Dancing.
