Movies Under the Stars

Let the stars be your guide all summer long!  


The Town of Chapel Hill and Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership are excited to announce the FREE Movies Under the Stars summer series held outdoors on top of the Wallace Parking Deck at 150 E. Rosemary Street. The series kicks-off on June 9th, 2016 at 8:30 p.m with Disney’s Lilo & Stitch.  Movie-goers of all ages will enjoy free popcorn, telescope demos, and fun activities.

The six, sci-fi themed movies are shown in a unique, outdoor location where you can enjoy the night sky and cool evening breezes. The series continues through August 18th on different Thursday evenings each month.
