As soon as it receives approval by local authorities and the North Carolina Governor's office, Brevard Music Center (BMC) will launch Brevard Music Center @ The Drive-In Movies on the music center campus.

The eight-film series is made possible by BMC with presenting sponsor Ingles Markets and lead sponsors, PLATT and the Transylvania County Library Foundation.

The series will begin in mid-to-late May with "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" as the first featured film in the series. The films will be presented on weekends at 9 p.m. on a big screen in the parking lot adjacent to BMC's Whittington-Pfohl Auditorium (WPA). Future movie titles and dates for the weekly film series will be announced online soon at

"Our Brevard Music Center @ The Drive-In Movies series will offer something for movie buffs of all ages, including iconic musicals and old classics, as well as family-friendly, adventure and action films. It will also allow our community to come together to share entertainment – in their cars and with their families – in a safe and inspiring environment," said Mark Weinstein, president and CEO of Brevard Music Center. "We know that all types of entertainment can soothe the soul. It is our hope that the Brevard Music Center @ The Drive-In Movies series will provide a welcome respite for music and movie lovers of all ages in our community and region."

Drive-in enthusiasts will enjoy featured movies on a 30-foot screen coordinated and constructed by PLATT. Audio will occur via FM transmission to the moviegoer's car radio. In order to minimize physical interactions, tickets can only be purchased ahead of time at and a limit of 80 cars per showing will be allowed.

BMC is also collaborating with the following community partners for Brevard Music Center @ The Drive-In Movies series: The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County, Rise & Shine Freedom School, SAFE, Veterans Museum of the Carolinas, Sharing House, Meals on Wheels, and Bread of Life. Volunteers from these participating nonprofit organizations will be giving each car a free bag of popcorn and candy along with literature about their missions in the community. Brevard's own Co-Ed Cinema is providing the popcorn, and Ingles will provide free candy to patrons.
