The curtain has risen on an 11th season of summer movies under the stars in Downtown Tucson.

The 2010 Cinema La Placita outdoor films series premiered Thursday night with a 1934 crime-comedy 'The Thin Man.'

"Next Thursday May 13 we're going to be showing 'A Hard Days Night' which is not only my favorite movie but also my three-year-old daughter's favorite movie, and May 20th 'Harold and Maude.'  May 20th is my birthday so I'm showing one of my favorite movies for my birthday then May 27 'Island of Lost Souls,'" says Erika O'Dowd.

Showings are every Thursday at 7:30 P.M. through October at La Placita Village on the southwest corner of Broadway and Church.

Organizers suggest a $3 donation. And you get all-you-can-eat popcorn
