Moonlit Movies: Flashback Fridays
Presented by City of Greenbelt, Beltway Plaza, Town Center Realty, and Old Greenbelt Theatre
Moonlit Movies are back! Outdoor movies have been a tradition in Greenbelt since 2014, and this year they will be a safe, fun way to get back to the movies! “Moonlit Movies: Flashback Fridays” will feature four weeks of nostalgic favorites on Braden Field, behind the Youth Center. This is a partnership of the City of Greenbelt and Old Greenbelt Theatre, generously sponsored by Beltway Plaza and Town Center Realty. In response to the latest executive order by Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, attendance is capped at 50 people, so 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; circles go on sale on Monday, August 3. 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. Once you've purchased your circle and concessions, you may attend the movie. 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. The showtimes are timed with sunset, so they will shift throughout the month of August. The first will start at 8:45, then 8/14 and 8/21 will be at 8:30, and 8/21 will start at 8:15. Movies for future dates will be announced soon. In the event of rain, movies will run on Saturdays.
