Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night

This Friday night, August 26, one of the most popular family events of the season returns to Knightdale Station Park, as Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night kicks off with a showing of the science fiction hit, “Avatar” playing on the big screen beginning at dusk.

With the Summer series proving once again to be a fun and entertaining night out for area families, the Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night series has four scheduled showings to take place on Friday evenings through the first week in October. The Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night events are completely free to the public and all are encouraged to bring either a blanket or chairs to sit on as they enjoy the movie.

The current schedule of movies to be shown during the Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night this fall:

There will be vendors on hand serving up refreshments at Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night, and this fall there will be added incentive to grabbing a bite to eat or a drink at the events this fall, as groups from local schools will be running the concessions and all proceeds will go directly to the school on hand that evening. The Hodge Road Elementary PTA will be at the Friday, August 26 showing of Avatar, so having a snack or any type refreshment at the event will not only curb your hunger or thirst, but it will also help our area schools throughout the Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night series.

Additionally, the Cub Scout Pack 365, which meets right in Knightdale every Tuesday night at the United Methodist Church will be on hand volunteering their time to help with each Knightdale Outdoor Movie Night. If you have a youngster interested in finding out more about this great organization, you can visit them at any of the movie night events, or go to their website at
