Enjoy Shakespeare In The Great Outdoors With Movies In The Park 8

Shakespeare Dallas presents Movies In The Park, an entire month full of socially distanced movie nights. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from October 1-24, 2020, there will be movies playing on the lawn at the Samuell-Grand Amphitheater.

“The weather is cooling down and I think it’s going to be a lovely fall. This is going to be a great way to get outside and stay safe while enjoying spending time with those around you,” said Raphael Parry, Executive & Artistic Director of Shakespeare Dallas.

On Thursdays Shakespeare-inspired movies will be showing, Fridays will be classic films, and Saturdays will be family-friendly movies. Tickets are  $15 and can be purchased online. For Shakespeare Dallas members, movies are free on Thursdays. Email Shakespeare Dallas to receive a special code.
