11:00 AM Art Exhibition: Tijuana Artist Hugo Crosthwaite Installations at the Station welcomes contemporary figurative artist Hugo Crosthwaite to ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station. An internationally recognized artist, Crosthwaite will create site-specific, outdoor murals to further transform the monochromatic, rigid former military base into a creative space that better reflects the growing arts and cultural destination. Crosthwaite will paint 16 improvisational murals related to the area, its Navy history, and circumstances he encounters each day while on-site from August 3 to 17.

Visitors are invited to watch and engage in conversation with the artist as he paints, experiencing the beauty of dialogue through muralism and draftsmanship. Times may vary slightly according to artist's schedule.

San Diegans love summertime, outdoor movies and cult-classics, and the ultimate film experience Rooftop Cinema Club delivers on all three fronts with a July-August lineup loaded with great titles. As the season of celebration continues there are plenty of big-screen anniversaries, women in film nights and a healthy dose of musicals to keep the party going. Brand new to San Diego this year, Rooftop Cinema Club has re-defined the outdoor movie experience in Southern California. Featuring great films, amazing food and top-shelf drinks overlooking the San Diego skyline, Rooftop Cinema Club offers its own set of unique amenities, including state-of-the-art HD video, studio-quality wireless headphones, soft lounge-style deck chairs, and cozy blankets for those cool nights. And while Rooftop Cinema Club boasts delicious hot popcorn, the venue's fare goes well beyond that of a traditional theater. Featuring a food menu heavy on street-fare, the Rooftop Concession Stand's most-popular plates includes Ahi Poke Nachos, Fish Tacos, and Carne Asada Tacos and Nachos. And if a cocktail suits your needs, Rooftop Cinema Club offers two signature cocktails - Stay Classy on the Rocks and Almost Famous on the Rocks - along with a host of craft-beer, IPA and wine options.

We invite guests to write messages on paper lanterns and enjoy a relaxing San Diego evening at the waterside Coronado City Council Chambers patio along with light food, refreshments, origami, exhibits, presentations and live music—a wonderful experience to gather and celebrate with fellow community members and leaders.
