Movies on the Beach This Summer at Callaway Gardens®

This Summer Callaway Gardens®’ Robin Lake Beach becomes an outdoor cinema with Movies on the Beach.

Each Monday night through August 3, Robin Lake’s sandy beach will be the seating and the stars the backdrop for evenings of family-oriented movies. Projected onto an inflatable, 35-foot wide screen, the movies will be shown with a digital projection system with surround sound.

The movie schedule is:

June 15: Kung Fu Panda

In conjunction with the Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival at Callaway Gardens the season ends with a special showing on Saturday, September 5.

Sept. 5: Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines

Prior to show time, moviegoers will be entertained with music, beach games and more. Showtime will be at dusk (generally around 9:00 p.m.). Guests may want to bring a blanket or lawn chair and a portable AM radio for enhanced sound where they are sitting. The Beach Pavilion will be open for snacks and beverages.

Movies on the Beach is a great way to end a full day of family fun at Callaway Gardens. Guests visiting the Gardens during the day will be admitted to the movies at no additional cost. Day admission is $15/adult; $7.50/child (ages six to 12); children five and younger are admitted for free. The Gardens and its attractions are open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Don’t rush home, enjoy all of the Summer fun at Callaway the next day on an overnight package. The Callaway Gardens Stimulus package starts at only $99 in the Mountain Creek Inn (rates are available in the Cottages and Villas) and, in addition to admission to the Gardens and the movie, includes free golf, tennis, boating and biking.
