Summer Films

Outdoor films at the NCMA are back! Come experience big-screen movie magic under the stars at the Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., Theater in the Museum Park. This summer enjoy movies and musicals that will make you nostalgic for decades past. Let yourself be transported back in time to the moment you first experienced these classic films.


  • Free for Members and children 6 and under
  • $7 Nonmembers (plus taxes and fees)


Tickets required for entry

Gates open 60 minutes before show time. Many movies sell out, so we encourage you to buy tickets in advance by ordering online or visiting Tickets and Membership in East Building. If the movie isn’t sold out, you may purchase tickets at the gates using a QR code.

The NCMA permits factory-sealed plastic water bottles and empty refillable water bottles at entry; otherwise, no outside food or beverage is allowed in the Amphitheater. The NCMA offers a variety of snacks and beverages for purchase, including beer and wine.

Following local ordinances, visitors are required to wear a mask inside all buildings, including restrooms and concession buildings. For the safety of everyone, we ask that all outdoor event attendees wear masks both outdoors and indoors. 

Where do I park? Can I bring my dog? How about picnics? What happens if it rains? For answers to these questions and others, see our 2021 Movie Policies
