Summer Movie Nights at the Triangle’s Open-Air Theaters

Tonight, Friday June 28, marks the beginning of the North Carolina Museum of Art’s Summer Movie Series! Watch films on the big screen, picnic with friends or family, and enjoy the open-air outdoor theater. Featuring classics, award winners, and family favorites, each movie is listed on the museum’s website and the show starts at 9pm (until mid-August, 8:30pm thereafter).

Concessions are available for purchase as well as beer and wine, though you can also bring (non-alcoholic) items with you. Tickets are only $5 (free for museum members) and gates open 90 minutes before show time so you have plenty of time to find the perfect spot and have a picnic.

In addition to the Museum of Art’s Summer Movie Series, Koka Booth Amphitheater in Cary has an annual Movies by Moonlight series, transforming the concert venue into an open-air outdoor theater. Movies begin at dusk and the gates open at 7pm. Patrons are allowed to bring picnics here too and concessions are available. Tickets are only $3 and children 12 and under are free.

Both open-air theaters are a great way to spend time with friends and family while enjoying some of Hollywood’s hottest releases in a unique natural setting. Pack a picnic and plan your weekend night out today!
