Lights, Camera, Action! The sights and sounds of FREE outdoor family entertainment are set to return to Mall of Georgia! My family loves packing a picnic and heading out to our favorite venues to enjoy movies under the stars as a family. This year Mall of Georgia will be hosting it’s eighth annual Movies Under The Stars summer series, presented by AutoNation Mall of Georgia and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, beginning Saturday, May 28. Invite your friends and family and join them on the lawn at the Village Amphitheater every Saturday evening through July 30 to enjoy a complimentary cinema and concert showcase.
As part of the summer series, local bands take the stage at The Village Pavilion from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. and the feature film shines on a 35-foot big screen at The Village Amphitheater starting at dusk around 9 p.m. Guests can also enjoy a variety of fun games, jump time in bounce houses and summer snack concessions, including Skip’s Hawaiian Shaved Ice, popcorn, cotton candy and more. As always, shoppers are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to get cozy for the music and motion picture production!
With family flicks like “Minions,” silver screen classics like “Grease” and rockin’ tunes from The Woody’s and Brent Gafford Band on the lineup, this entertainment series is the perfect way to spend summer nights with family and friends!
