FREE OUTDOOR MOVIE SCREENINGS IN SANDY SPRINGS GET TWO THUMBS UP
Remember going to the drive-in?
Pulling up in your car, rolling down the windows and scarfing down a tub of popcorn as you watched the latest releases up on the big screen? This month, you can experience the nostalgia of outdoor cinema—just without the cars—at the annual Movies by Moonlight event in Sandy Springs.
On Sept. 9 and 30, a 40-foot inflatable screen will be placed on the terraced lawn of the Sandy Springs United Methodist Church, allowing moviegoers a perfect starlit view of the films The Jungle Book (Sept. 9) and Ice Age: Collision Course (Sept. 30). Starting at 6 p.m., a trio of food trucks will be on hand, or you can bring drinks and snacks if you prefer.
Just don’t forget a blanket or lawn chair to sit on. The pre-show entertainment includes bouncy castles, tumbling, carnival games and more. – JB
