Mountainfilm on Tour Savannah free family movies


For many families, summer nights mean summer movies.

There’s nothing quite like popping some corn, laying down a blanket, and letting the rolls roll into the sunset. While the pandemic has sidelined many such events over the past two years, Mountainfilm on Tour Savannah is continuing the tradition with its new free family movie nights.

This is the nonprofit’s second time hosting the free event, which features a selection of culturally rich and adventure-rich documentaries curated from the Mountainfilm Festival in Telluride, CO.

“We are thrilled to bring families together to celebrate summer and watch some truly inspiring documentary films,” shares Leslie Carey, Director of Mountainfilm on Tour Savannah.

The family movie night is scheduled for Saturday at the Museum of Sea Ships, in its large outdoor area.

The event kicks off at 5 p.m. with a social hour and concessions in the museum’s outdoor gardens. Visitors can enjoy food trucks from The Naked Dog, Krazian, Leopold ice cream and free popcorn.

“Mountainfilm is all about inspiration,” Carey added. “You leave the movies ready to plan your next adventure and discover things you can do to make the world a little better.”

Mountainfilm is a documentary film festival that showcases non-fiction stories about environmental protection, cultural diversity, adventure and social justice issues. In partnership with Mountainfilm, Mountainfilm on Tour Savannah has been bringing these inspiring stories to the Lowcountry for over a decade for moviegoers of all ages.

Carey thanks the support of local moviegoers and community leaders that make free events like this possible.

“We want to thank the City of Savannah for their investment in this program and all of our very generous supporters,” Carey added.
