Downtown movie nights revive fantasy heroes of childhoods past

“Harry Potter” films draw hundreds of movie-goers to Main Street each August as part of the city’s Friday Movie Nights series. This year the series goes deep into the childhood fantasy canon, with villains from decades past joining the Malfoys in the lineup.

Los Altos’ free outdoor movie nights light up starting Friday evening, and this year’s roster of films introduces young viewers to high-flying, witch-battling, sorcerous adventures spanning the last century. The lineup will also likely delight parents who’ve gone too long without remembering Falkor and Atreyu, Mr. Tumnus the Faun and, of course, Dorothy.

The Los Altos Village Association (LAVA) hoists a screen across Main Street for Friday Movie Nights as families spread out blankets, chairs and picnics at downtown’s core.
