Historic Thalian Hall and the Wilson Center at CFCC Proudly Present
The Skyline Drive-In Series
Featuring Made-in-ILM Films!
Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts and the Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College are thrilled to announce a new Drive-In series – Skyline Drive-in Movies, which will take place under the stars on the Downtown Campus of CFCC, beginning this month!
This unique new entertainment experience will elevate the concept of the drive-in cinema to an entirely new level – specifically, the top level of the Hanover Street Student Parking Deck, just opposite the Wilson Center. The series will highlight the history of cinema in Wilmington, and will feature films made in Wilmington and the surrounding Cape Fear region.
Tickets for the movies, which are available now, are being sold exclusively at the Wilson Center’s Ticket Central box office. Though the Wilson Center has temporarily suspended in-person ticket sales, tickets are available for purchase via telephone and through the venue’s web site. The first several films of the series will be The Conjuring, directed by James Wan; Blue Velvet, directed by David Lynch; and Stephen King’s Firestarter, directed by Mark Lester. The dates and screening times for these spooky films are:
  • The Conjuring (rated R): Sept. 17th, 19th & 20th, at 8 p.m.
  • Blue Velvet (rated R): Sept. 28th, 29th & 30th, at 8 p.m.
  • Firestarter (rated R): Oct. 1st, 3rd & 4th, at 8 p.m.  
These are ticketed events, and capacity for these screenings are limited to preserve sight lines. Tickets must be bought in advance; no walk-up tickets will be available. The event will be held in compliance with local and state health guidelines and will be an in-car event. The film sound will be broadcast via short-range FM radio transmission. In order to optimize the movie experience, it is recommended that ticket purchasers arrive with a tunable FM receiver (vehicle radio or the like).
