"Big Night" to be screened Wednesday at annual Hillcrest Movie on the Roof | VIDEO

SAN DIEGO -- The Hillcrest History Guild, along with Whole Foods Market and HillQuest.com, will present the sixth "Summer Movie on the Roof" on Wednesday evening.

This annual event typically draws crowds more than 200 people to the roof atop Whole Foods Market for an evening of fun, community spirit, food and film.

Event organizers have selected the 1996 hit "Big Night" as this year's film, the story of a failing Italian restaurant run by two brothers who gamble on one special night to try to save the business.

Popular actors such as Stanley Tucci, Marc Anthony, Minnie Driver, Isabella Rossellini and Allison Janey star in the film.

Neighbors typically gather early bringing blankets, chairs and picnics, while Whole Foods Market and many of its vendors including Viva Pops, Basil Tops and Perfect Food Bars will be serving up complimentary treats. The Go Green food truck will be offering food for purchase and attendees may also bring purchased items from inside Whole Foods up to the roof.

Doors open at 6:30pm and the movie begins at dusk, around 8 pm.

Whole Foods Market is located at 711 University Ave. in Hillcrest. For more information, click HERE.
