Food will be available for purchase from food trucks and vendors on the grounds.
            "This is yet another opportunity for families to get together and celebrate this holiday season," said 
Kaleve Iosefa, who is heading Honolulu City Lights. "This event is in its 27
th year but we have never had a
movie night before. We invite residents and visitors to bring their fold up chairs and picnic mats and enjoy
the film under the stars."
