Movies by Starlight: We’re baaack!

June 25, 2020

We’re so excited to announce that The Southern Village Market Street Association Movies by Starlight, presented by The Lumina Theater, is now playing!

Movies will be shown Friday and Saturday nights through September. New for 2020, we will be playing Tuesday and Thursday movies as well.

Tickets are available online in advance only, under Now Playing. One ticket is good for one 9 ft by 9 ft seating “pod,” which holds up to 5 people. The first 2 rows are blanket seating only.

Although concessions have not been present at past Lumina outdoor movie showings, this summer will feature popcorn, ice cream, candy, and soft drinks at the Concession Stand. Guests may also bring in their own food, but please, no glass bottles.

In accordance with safety guidelines set forth by the state of NC for its Phase 2 reopening, The Lumina also has worked with the Orange County Health Department to create a safe environment for moviegoers on the Southern Village Market Street Green. Details of this plan are on our Movie by Starlight page.

See you soon. We’ll be back.

Dear The Lumina Family,

Thank you for the support you’ve shown The Lumina historically and as it has transitioned to new ownership. The Lumina team cares deeply about our community, guests and employees, and we have made the difficult decision to close to ensure we are doing our part to slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

During this time, we plan to renovate our lobby and begin the process of updating theater seating and adding eat-in and take-out pizza. We remain committed to bringing a new and improved Lumina Theater to Chapel Hill in the near future.

To our guests, colleagues, and friends – we wish you the best, and we look forward to serving you again soon. If you would like to show your love in the meantime gift cards are available online here.

As always, thank you for your support.

The Lumina Theater Owners
