Picnic & Outdoor Movie at NCMA: Captain Phillips

It is the start of the North Carolina Museum of Art's Summer Film Series, which takes place on the lawn next to the amphitheater on a big screen. New this year: a high-definition digital format with a new state-of-the art digital projection system. This Saturday night's film is Captain Phillips (w/ Tom Hanks in a highly praised performance as a ship captain whose vessel is commandeered by Somali pirates, 2013). The movie is $5.00 -- free for museum members.

NOTE from the NCMA site --

    Wish I hadn't already seen Cap'n Phillips or I'd be there in a heart beat just for the picnic aspect! Maybe next time. Enjoy!

    Thank you Diane for correcting the start time to 7:30.
    See you when you get there. And that is a lot of "swinging by" the stand!

    Always enjoy the museum outdoor theater this time of year, and I've been wanting to catch this film for some time. Add food and good company - what's not to like?
