The Mauldin Cultural Center is launching a new event that’s sure to become the City’s next fall tradition with Friday Night Flicks, an outdoor movie series that kicks off on Oct. 6 with the electrifying “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.”
The family-friendly series features a movie every Friday night in October, with a mix of genres that offer a little something for everyone — from sci-fi and action to a celebration of spooky season.
All movies begin at dusk at the Cultural Center’s outdoor amphitheater at 101 E. Butler Rd.
“We wanted to offer a new way for community members to gather at the outdoor amphitheater in the fall season,” said Cultural Center Manager Christine Faust. “Friday Night Flicks is a fun and easy way to enjoy the crisp weather with friends and family while relaxing under the stars.”
The film lineup is as follows:
Oct. 6 – “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” (PG) | Approx. 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 13 – “Coco” (PG) | Approx. 7:20 p.m.
Oct. 20 – “Top Gun: Maverick” (PG-13) | Approx. 7:15 p.m.
Oct. 27 – “The Addams Family” (PG-13) | Approx. 7:10 p.m.
Guests are welcome to bring blankets or lawn chairs as well as outside food and non-alcoholic beverages. The Mauldin Sports Center will be giving away free popcorn, and Obey the Crave will be on site with fresh-baked cookies and Cuban coffee available for purchase.
Friday Night Flicks is the latest addition to the Mauldin Cultural Center’s popular event lineup, which includes the Mauldin Blues & Jazz Festival, Amp’d Up Fridays and the SOOIE. BBQ Cook-off.
