Movies in the Garden: Dreamgirls
Movies in the Garden is back in RLT’s Stephenson Amphitheatre! Join us September 9 for an outdoor screening of the 2006 movie adaptation of the hit musical Dreamgirls!
Start time: 7:30 PM
Runtime: 2h, 11min
Deena (Beyoncé Knowles), Effie (Jennifer Hudson) and Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose) form a music trio called the Dreamettes. When ambitious manager Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx) spots the act at a talent show, he offers the chance of a lifetime, to be backup singers for a national star (Eddie Murphy). Taylor takes creative control of the group and eventually pushes the singers into the spotlight. However, one becomes the star, forcing another out, which teaches them about the high cost of fame.
The movie will be screened outside to an audience of up to 300 guests in the Stephenson Amphitheatre. Tickets are general admission and sold at pay-what-you-can pricing. We will have some seating rows marked off to encourage social distancing between parties. A ticket is required for all patrons, regardless of age. Masks will not be required when seated but are suggested in outdoor common spaces and required indoors. It is recommended that unvaccinated attendees wear a mask at all times.

Jones Lemonade Slushys will be serving cold frozen lemonade at the event! Additional food truck information will be announced shortly.
You are welcome to bring your own picnic and non-alcoholic drinks to the event as well. Please see the detailed rules below regarding what can be brought in.
Additional thanks to North State Bank.

Bringing blankets or chairs makes seating more comfortable. Lawn chairs or folding chairs work well. There is grass between the concrete benches, and chairs fit well in that space.
