Film School partners with Reynolda House to present Cinema Under the Stars

One of the Piedmont Triad’s original outdoor film series returns this month to the expansive front lawn of Reynolda House. Cinema Under the Stars will kick off its 12th season on Friday, Aug. 10 with the family-friendly film “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and continues Friday nights through Aug. 31.

Gates open at 7 p.m. each night, and films will be shown on the front lawn at sunset. In case of rain, films will be shown in the museum’s auditorium. Filmgoers are encouraged to arrive early and picnic on the lawn. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be available for cash purchase; no outside alcohol is permitted. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome.

Cost is $5 per person or $20 per car, cash only. Children age 5 and under are free.

This year's Cinema Under the Stars schedule includes:

August 10: “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”

The Winston-Salem Youth Flute Ensemble will perform before the film at 7:45 p.m. Formed in 2011, the ensemble is a summer music program that gives students in middle school through college an opportunity to learn and perform music together during the summer months. The group is directed by UNCSA alumni Peter and Lissie Shanahan.

August 17: “Sideways”

August 24: “National Lampoon’s Vacation”

August 31: “O Brother, Where Art Thou”
