If you need a break from the heat at all those outdoor movie showings, the 2016 Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival held at the Fox Theatre in Midtown Atlanta may be just the perfect solution. Throughout the summer, modern and vintage movie classics will be shown on Fox Theatre’s 26-foot high x 56-foot-8-inch wide big screen, and patrons will enjoy movies under the “stars” with Fox Theatre’s distinct blue sky with twinkling stars and fluffy clouds. For select showings, 2016 Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival offers guests a magical pre-show experience that includes a sing-along with a vintage cartoon and the world renowned Mighty Mo organ.
Closing Night’s Fan Favorite offers Fox Theatre’s guests the opportunity to end the 2016 festival with a cinematic ‘bang’! Hosted on the Fox Theatre’s Facebook page, fans voted for “Some Like It Hot” to return to the big screen.
In addition, Special Movie Tours will be available prior to the noted films, allowing guests to experience guided tours through the projection booth, screening room, celebrity dressing rooms, and the iconic Fox Theatre stage while learning about the history of movie palaces and Mr. William Fox’s innovations.
