Picturesque town offsets COVID stress with drive-in moonlight movie night

World War I monument, Newberry SC

If you’re going a little stir crazy from the COVID shutdowns and looking for ideas for something neat to do, the city of Newberry, SC has come up with a great option. One way to offset stress and presumably stay safe when venturing out is to take in the Fall Moonlight Movie Night held in the center of downtown.

Located approximately 45 miles west of the state capital of Columbia, Newberry is a picturesque village-style town with a restored historic opera house, a highly regarded Lutheran liberal arts college founded in 1856, and a family orchid business, Carter and Holmes, well known by their peers in the industry around the world.

The film Aladdin will be shown on September 18; the event is free. Full details and links to guidelines are posted at the town’s newspaper, The Newberry Observer. This event sounds like great family fun, and additional movie nights are planned for October and November. Information is also available at the Events page on Facebook.

Other cities might consider doing this because it looks like a good way to forget about stress and just enjoy the evening.
