Throughout the summer, you’ve probably noticed many cities hosting free outdoor movies. While these events are a fun and cheap way to entertain the family, hosting them during the summer months means unbearable heat, even after the sun sets. Luckily, Sandy Springs has an outdoor movie series hosted by Leadership Sandy Springs that takes place in the fall, offering a much more tolerable climate.
Held on selected Friday evenings this fall, the 7th Annual Movies by Moonlight features three movies shown under the stars on a 45-foot screen. Festivities begin at 6 p.m., and the movies start at dusk. Admission and parking are free.
The movies are shown on the terraced lawn at Sandy Springs United Methodist Church’s Hitson Activity Center, located at the intersection of Mount Vernon Highway and Sandy Springs Circle, 86 Mount Vernon Hwy. Attendees should enter from Sandy Springs Circle.
The 2011 dates and movies include:
- Sept. 9: RIO
- Sept. 23: Soul Surfer
- Oct. 14: Secretariat
Moviegoers are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy pre-movie activities for the children and entertainment including public safety presentations. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are allowed. Pizza, popcorn, ice cream, snacks and drinks will be for sale onsite. Pets and alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
In case of uncertain weather on the day of the movie, please call 404-256-9091 for an update. Information will be posted on the Leadership Sandy Springs website around 6:00 pm that day.
