Let the stars guide your family to a free movie with popcorn on Thursday nights this summer. The Town of Chapel Hill and Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership are excited to announce the return of Movies Under the Stars - a free outdoor summer movie series on the Wallace Plaza in Downtown Chapel Hill. The series kicks-off on June 7th, 2018 at 8:30 p.m. with Spiderman: Homecoming. Moviegoers of all ages will enjoy free popcorn and fun activities with cotton candy and cold treats to purchase.

Movies Under the Stars continues through August with different themes each month. In June, audiences will see the superhero titles  Spiderman: Homecoming on June 7 and Wonder Woman on June 14. Dream of galaxies far, far away with recent Star Wars titles in July: Star Wars: Force Awakens on July 19 and Star Wars: The Last Jedi on July 26. Family-oriented films Coco and Beauty and the Beast are scheduled for August 9 and August 16. There is no charge for admission to the Wallace Plaza, which has space to bring your own blankets and chairs.

Arrive early to the Plaza, beginning at 7:00 p.m., for family-oriented games and activities, a movie-themed trivia contest for the first movie of each month, and a themed costume contest for the second movie of each month. Dust off your favorite costume and brush up on your trivia knowledge for superheroes in June, Star Wars in July, and Disney characters in August.

The Town of Chapel Hill promotes a Bike & Pedestrian-Friendly Community and encourages everyone to cycle or walk to these great events!
