Summer Outdoor Movies

Updated 5/2011

What is better than watching the movies under a starry, summer night sky in the south? I can't think of many things. Unfortunately, C is not yet an avid movie-watcher, but I can't wait until he can take in one of these fabulous Triangle events:

Chapel Hill's Locally Grown Rooftop Music and Movies
series is a fairly new addition to Chapel Hill, and sounds like a lot of fun. On the top of the Wallace Parking Garage.
Thursday nights, concerts start at 7 and movies start at sundown.
Very family-friendly flicks, schedule published in advance.

The Lumina at Southern Village hosts movies on the Southern Village green.
Fridays and Saturdays at dusk.
Very family-friendly flicks, schedule published in advanced.
$4 listed as fee, unclear as to ages, etc.
See http://www.southernvillage.com/movies-music.htm

Every Thursday at dusk, Cary's Booth Ampitheatre offers a Movies at Moonlight family series in the summer.
$3 for adults, children 12 & under are free.
Very family-friendly flicks, schedule published in advanced.

There is also a classic drive-in theatre here in Raleigh (ok, well, Henderson), the Raleigh Road Drive-In. They are currently celebrating their 61st anniversary and have been featured nationally in many publications and on tv. Apparently there is a children's playground, too, on the premises. This blogger is making a note to try this in the future!
A lot of family-friendly flicks, schedule published in advanced, they even have new releases.
2 adults + 2 kids = $18
Dogs welcome!

As I mentioned in the NC Museum of Art post (see here), the Museum offers outdoor movies during the summer.
A lot of these are PG-13, but they do offer some family-friendly flicks as well.
$4 for non-members.

New 5/2011: The American Tobacco Campus now offers Movies on The Lawn! See the website here to get updates (their online schedule is quite difficult in my opinion). They start late, it seems, but would be fun. Yet another reason to love Durham.

CLOSED- Also, for your information, Carrboro Raw (the new juice bar in downtown Carrboro) offers outdoor movies as well, but these seem to be more intense in nature.
The 2nd and 4th Sundays throughout the summer, at 8pm.
No information on price.
