WHAT: Universal CityWalk celebrates its 20th birthday with a blockbuster-worthy bash that drives flashy street racers from Universal Pictures’ “Fast & Furious” films to park at CityWalk in time for the much-anticipated movie opening weekend and the launch of the summer blockbuster season. A life-sized wax figure of Vin Diesel from Madame Tussauds Hollywood will also share the spotlight with the “Fast & Furious” cars.

A retrospective of eight original, souped-up prop cars, including three from “Fast & Furious 6” will be staged at “5 Towers” on CityWalk to help get the birthday party started. With an exciting slate of blockbuster movies poised to reign over Hollywood this summer, Universal CityWalk will become LA’s blockbuster movie destination where guests can join the fun and see the latest hit movie for only $2 in parking or ‘Movie Buffs to Park for $2 Bucks.’

The arrival of an elaborate 20-tier cake, punctuated by confetti canons and a lively Happy Birthday rendition from the popular band, Midnight Red, will keep the momentum going. Midnight Red will also headline CityWalk’s free “Summer Music Spotlight” concert series at “5 Towers,” beginning June 29.

Advance screenings for the pre-Memorial Day weekend blockbuster will begin with “Fast & Furious 6” at 7:15pm, 10pm and midnight with crowds of enthusiastic fans.
