Hey everyone! We’re back to update you on current movie happenings in the Shenandoah Valley. With temperatures beginning to drop (hopefully), more and more people start looking for things to do inside as a farewell to warm summer weather. There’s nothing better than grabbing some popcorn, settling in, and being entertained and inspired by what’s on the big screen.
If the classic indoor theatre is more your style, look no further than the Alamo Drafthouse in Winchester! Though it’s currently sold out, you can take this opportunity to see what it’s all about here and plan for next year! This weekend they’ll be kicking off their annual ‘Lost Weekend’ series, where guests watch 25 never-before-screened films back to back. This event is all about celebrating our cinephiles in the community as they blaze through independent, foreign, documentary, and classic films.
For families and kids who love film, come out this Saturday, September 30th for an exclusive Super 8 Family Film Club screening of ‘Supergirl’! Directed by Jessue Auritt, this documentary film follows Naomi “Supergirl” Kutin as she prepares for two major life events – her Bat Mitzvah and the biggest powerlifting competition of her life! It doesn’t sound too crazy until you take into account that she only weighs 95lbs! This is the perfect chance for your little ones to learn about embracing their own strengths and differences – even in the face of adversity.
October is definitely the month for outdoor movies at the Family Drive-In Theatre! Beginning on October 6th you can join hundreds of other Drive-In fans as you walk through a haunted trail, available every Friday and Saturday night this month! You’ll see the Drive-In’s famous horror tributes to Jason, Annabelle, Penny Wise, and tons of other frightening classics. Tickets are not available online and must be purchased at the site the night of.
If your plan this Halloween was to sit at home passing out candy, this might make you think about reusing that costume you wore last year or inspire you to go out and get a new one this year! On October 21st and 28th the Drive-In will be hosting their annual Trunk or Treat Costume Party, which is fun for the whole family – even your pet and car! Come prepared with a trunk full of candy and an awesome costume to maximize the fun! For movie schedules and times, check out their schedule here.
The Shenandoah Valley truly comes alive in the fall – there’s more leaves on the ground, more events to attend, and more fun to go around. We hope to see you at these events!
