Hotel Irvine’s popular Movie Nights in The Backyard is back! The hit from last year, movie-goers can ditch the indoor movie screen for gorgeous SoCal summer nights, grab their blankets or beach chairs and stake out the best spot they can find on the lawn. Featuring classic blockbuster favorites on a 16-foot giant outdoor movie screen, it’s the perfect night for families, friends or even an impromptu date night. Guests can pre-order a picnic from Marketplace or enjoy the chef’s outdoor buffet offering freshly prepared burgers, hot dogs, BBQ chicken, summer sides and staple movie snacks like ice cream, nachos, popcorn and favorite movie candies. Wine and cocktails are available, along with non-alcoholic beverages.
