Outdoor movies go digital! Big-screen movie magic under the stars has been a cherished NCMA experience for over 20 years. We present award-winning comedies, dramas, documentaries, animated features, and everything in between.
Beginning this season we’ll show outdoor movies in high-definition digital format with a new state-of-the art digital projection system. We will continue to screen beautiful archival film prints in our auditorium. The new projection equipment will make movies look and sound sharper on our outdoor screen and will give us a wider range of programming options. We greatly appreciate the generous support from Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., which made purchasing the new equipment possible.
Parents, please note: many screenings are family friendly, but we include a few R-rated titles each season.
