This is a partnership of the City of Greenbelt and Old Greenbelt Theatre, generously sponsored by Beltway Plaza and Town Center Realty.
Fifteen-year-old Sarah resents her baby brother Toby and secretly wishes that he will just disappear. Her wish comes true when goblins kidnap the boy. Feeling responsible and guilty about his abduction, she sets forth to retrieve him, and finds herself on the adventure of a lifetime. To rescue her brother, she must sneak into the castle of the Goblin King, which is in the center of a fantastical labyrinth. But, the task is easier said than done, for the maze is filled with strange creatures and mind-bending puzzles, and nothing is really as it seems.
How Moonlit Movies Work
“Moonlit Movies: Flashback Fridays” will feature four weeks of nostalgic favorites on Braden Field, behind the Greenbelt Youth Center.
In response to the latest executive order by Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, attendance is capped at 50 people. You must reserve your spot in advance at https://bit.ly/MoonlitMovies.
Each spot will be a 10-foot circle with a maximum of 5 people per circle. All circles will be 10 feet apart. Registration per circle is $25 – that’s just $5 per person!
To pre-order snacks from the movie theater, follow the link above. We encourage you to purchase your circle and concessions in the same order. Contactless pick-up at the movie theater will be available before each showing.
Recreation and OGT staff will be at the entrance—behind home plate—to direct you to a circle. Masks are required until you are in your circle, then you can remove your mask to enjoy your snacks.
Chairs are allowed, the lower the better—circles will be spaced to give everyone the best view possible. Select lights in the outfield will remain on so that guests can safely navigate. Bathroom access will be provided.
In the event of rain, this screening will take place at 8:15 pm on Saturday, August 29.
