Outdoor movies are a summer tradition in Raleigh, Durham Chapel Hill, and beyond. The summer of 2020, obviously, was not a normal summer.
However, there are still lots of chances to catch a movie outdoors. Drive-in movies are experiencing a resurgence. Permanent drive-in theaters, like Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre in Henderson, have exploded in popularity, and we’re starting to see pop-up drive-in movie theaters throughout the region, including at farms, churches, shopping centers and more.
The outdoor movies are continuing into the fall, with many scheduled all the way through October.
In addition, we’re seeing at least one movie theater, The Lumina, in Chapel Hill, that’s marked off “pods” with paint, to keep space between groups on the lawn.
Read on to see a day-by-day list of outdoor movies. This list will include both drive-in theaters and outdoor movies that enforce social distancing.
Take a look at the calendar and follow the links for details. In many cases tickets are selling out very quickly, so make sure to go ahead and order your tickets in advance.
