There are few things better than watching a movie under the stars against the beautiful backdrop of Ridgecrest. Cerro Coso Community College invites the public to a FREE showing of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in the Luis Miro Sculpture Garden on Thursday, July 27th at 8:15 p.m.
This spin-off of the Harry Potter franchise jumps back in time to explore the wizarding world of 1926 New York, which is being threatened by both mystical acts of destruction and a group of extremist No-Majs (the American term for Muggles, i.e. those unable to use magic). Author Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in the city as part of a global study of fantastic beasts, but he gets caught up in this conflict when some of the magical creatures in his care are accidentally released. Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller, and Johnny Depp co-star in this fantasy adventure, which was directed by David Yates (who helmed four of the Harry Potter films) and adapted for the screen by J.K. Rowling from her own book. Rated PG-13 this action adventure fantasy film is fun for the whole family!
