The Films at Crestwood
The Lounge at Crestwood will be kicking off a summer outdoor film series, titled Stars Under the Stars, this Friday as a benefit for Hospitality House.
"We want to bring that 'drive-in' movie experience to the lawn at Crestwood, as it is the perfect setting for movies with a view," said Greg Jung, Crestwood marketing consultant.
A variety of movies, from classics to new releases, will be shown Fridays on a 16- by 9- foot screen. Shows begin at dusk. Attendees are asked to bring their own blanket or chair for comfortable viewing. Rental chairs will also be available.
The first in the series will be this week with The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock and Quinton Aaron. The film is based on the true story of Michael Oher, from homeless teen to first-round NFL draft pick with the help of an adoptive family.
Attendees will receive a 10-percent discount coupon for food at the lounge on select nights through the series. Drink specials will also be available for those over 21.
Tickets are $6 for general admission and $4 for college students and those under 18. One dollar from each ticket will be donated to Hospitality House to help those experiencing homelessness in the High Country.
In the event of rain, the movies will be shown indoors.
The Lounge at Crestwood, part of the Inn at Crestwood, is located at 3236 Shulls Mill Road in Boone. For a full movie schedule, directions or more information, visit http://www.loungeatcrestwood.com or call (828) 963-6646.
