Movies by The Sea may be saved

Recreation board members on Wednesday will look at a plan that might make Movies by the Sea the second community event to be saved.

A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that the summer movies at the Cove wouldn’t happen this summer but it looks like there’s a solution to that event, too, as there was with the fundraising drive that saved the July 4th fireworks.

When the board members of recreation council, the nonprofit that oversees Village parks and teams up with Promote La Jolla for the family-oriented event, learned they wouldn’t get the $7,000 grant from Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, they initially called it off,

But the council’s treasurer Hobe Schroeder said there’s been a new development.

“A company, CommCinema, which presents movies all over the county, has come forward and said they could do it for half the price -- less than $2,000,” he said. “What they do is get sponsors who can advertise.”

Shroeder said the parks board will consider funding the moveis this year at its next meeting June 24 at 5 p.m. at La Jolla Rec Center, Room 1.
