Grab the popcorn, sit back and relax, and keep cool this summer with a free Family Film Series presented by Violet Crown Cinema and the Virginia Discovery Museum on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall. Starting June 21 and continuing through Aug. 18, a family-friendly film will screen every other week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. at Violet Crown.

The film series is free to attend, but space is limited. Tickets are available at Violet Crown on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is reached.

After the movie, families enjoy half-price same-day admission to VDM when they redeem their ticket stub at the Museum’s check-in desk.
