From August through November the relatively new AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas is having Free Sunset Screenings every 3rd Saturday of the month in Strauss Square. Sunset Screenings begin showing at about sunset time, but we know that time changes as we transition into fall so check below for the schedule. The free outdoor shows, presented by the Dallas Film Society allow North Texans to come and relax in the Arts District while viewing a movie. If you haven’t been able to enjoy this trendy new downtown venue, here’s good reason to. There are only 500 reserved seats in chairs in the front of the lawn so the remaining seats will be on the lawn. That means you might carry your own lawn chair just in case or RSVP here so they know that you’re coming!
Being that it’s summer in August in DALLAS, the only thing preventing the Sunset Screenings from taking place is if a Heat Advisory has been issued for that day or if the temperature is expected to be 100 degrees and up. We don’t want anyone passing out! Plus you will be miserable sitting outside when it’s THAT hot. The good news is that once we get into the Fall months it will be a lot cooler. In fact, check out the lineup for AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Sunset Screenings this year:
August 20: “Exit Through the Gift Shop” (8:30pm)
September 24: “Waiting for Guffman” (8:00pm)
October 15: “Almost Famous” (7:00pm)
November 19: “Walk the Line” (7:00pm)
Thanks to the Dallas Film Society you can enjoy 4 Free movies over the next 4 months and enjoy the view AT&T Performing Arts Center in the District Arts area.
