Reynolda House and UNCSA School of Filmmaking present Cinema Under the Stars 2016 series

Entering its second decade as one of the Piedmont Triad’s most popular outdoor film series, Cinema Under the Stars returns to Reynolda House Museum of American Art in August.

The Cinema Under the Stars series will show films Aug. 5, 12, 19 and Aug. 26. Gates open at 7:30 p.m. each night, and films will be shown on the front lawn at 8:30 p.m., or dark. In case of rain, films will be shown in the museum’s Babcock Auditorium. Filmgoers are encouraged to arrive early and picnic on the lawn and to participate in nightly themes inspired by the films. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be available for purchase; no outside alcohol is permitted. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome.

Admission is $5 per person or $20 per car. Reynolda After Hours (RAH) passholders may use their pass for admission. The RAH pass costs $40, and is good for up to $60 worth of admission toward the museum’s Reynolda After Hours events. For more information on the RAH pass and to purchase a pass, visit

Cinema Under the Stars is co-presented by the School of Filmmaking at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Additional information about the film series is available at and on social media by searching #reynoldasummer.
