Summer Movie Memories at The Majestic Theater Showing Through August
Published August 8, 2012
The beginning of August is always marked with “Back-to-School” and hints of fall everywhere you turn. I absolutely love fall, especially fall in Gettysburg, but I’m not ready to give up on summer just yet.
One wonderful summer tradition in Gettysburg is continuing throughout the entire month of August- Summer Movie Memories at the Majestic Theater.
This is the 6th season for “Classic Movies” shown at the Majestic Theater on the Big Screen every Wednesday at 7:30pm throughout the summer. Guests have the chance to view these movies like you’ve never seen them before! For only $6.00 per ticket, this is a great opportunity to enjoy a night out with a group of friends or someone you love. It is also a great chance to enjoy a midweek Getaway at the Gettysburg Hotel before the summer is over. Popcorn, refreshments, and beer & wine are available.
4 showings remain this season!
