The new innovative community development site just south of the Albuquerque International Sunport, Mesa del Sol, hosts events to make the area more than a home- but also a neighborhood. In addition to the beautiful features such as a gigantic dog park, neighborhood pool, cafe, school and others, they also have free events. One of the coolest events is their Movie Night in which they display a movie in the park on an inflatable 30 x 20' screen, which is the largest inflatable screen in the city. There is a new movie showing each month and participants are asked to bring their lawn chairs, blankets or any other items to watch the movie. This will take place at Aperture Plaza of Mesa del Sol and the movies are open to the public.

The event begins at 6pm with free face painting and a jump house. There will be food for sale at the plaza. The movie will begin at 8:30 pm. The movie schedule is as follows. 'The Lego Movie' will be showing on Saturday, July 26th. Although you may have seen on their flyer that it was supposed to be 'The Neverending Story', their facebook page confirmed that this has changed to 'Lego Movie'. Since 'Lego Movie' supposed to show on August 23, perhaps this one will change too. Watch their facebook page for latest updates on the movie titles. Despicable Me 2 will be showing September 27, however, check back with Mesa del Sol for any changes.

Food vendors that will be selling at Movie Night include Cheesy Street, Gedunk Food Truck/Cart, and Pop Fizz which will be available for purchase starting at 6:30 pm. Kids are encouraged and welcome to dress up as their favorite character or another costume, to get into the spirit of fun and community. Movie night also serves as a night to promote the Mesa del Sol neighborhood. They will have "Mesa del Sol builders tables which will include giveaways and great information about our community." At dusk, stick around to watch a movie on the largest screen in all of Albuquerque! Mesa del Sol is located at 5700 University Blvd SE # 310, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106.
