BREVARD — The Brevard Music Center will launch Brevard Music Center @ The Drive-In Movies, which it is touting as “an exciting summer drive-in movie series brought to you by Ingles Markets, presenting sponsor, on the Music Center campus.”

The series will debut with “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” at 9 p.m. May 30. The remainder of the eight-film series was not available by presstime May 13, but will be announced online “soon” at brevardmusic.org, a BMC press release stated.

The films will be presented on weekends at 9 p.m. on a 30-foot screen in the parking lot adjacent to BMC’s Whittington-Pfohl Auditorium at 349 Andante Lane in Brevard. 

BMC is also collaborating with the following community partners for Brevard Music Center @ The Drive-In Movies series: The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County, Rise and Shine Freedom School, SAFE, Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas, Sharing House, Meals on Wheels, and Bread of Life. 

Volunteers from these participating nonprofit organizations will be giving each car a free bag of popcorn and candy along with literature about their missions in the community. Brevard’s Co-Ed Cinema is providing the popcorn, and Ingles will provide free candy to patrons.

Drive-in enthusiasts will be treated to movies on a special screen coordinated and constructed by PLATT. Audio will occur via FM transmission to the moviegoer’s car radio. To minimize physical interactions, tickets can only be purchased ahead of time at brevardmusic.org and a limit of 80 cars per showing will be allowed.

 “Our Brevard Music Center @ The Drive-In Movies series will offer something for movie buffs of all ages, including iconic musicals and old classics, as well as family-friendly, adventure and action films,” the BMC press release stated.
