In San Marcos, there are some great “old school” family movies played at San Marcos Civic Center Mall on Twin Oaks Valley Road and Mission Road. The fun part is they play the movies on the big screen by the fountain/fire pit.  You can eat at Pizza Nova outside and watch the movie or grab dinner from one of the other restaurants (sushi, burgers, Subway, coffee, frozen yogurt, etc) bring it over and watch the movie.  What a great family night or date night while enjoying a movie and cocktails.  All movies start at 8:30 pm.
