Garden Theatre Interactive Movie Series 2020

It doesn't get more classic than the tried and true dinner and a movie date night combo. That’s why we’re so excited about the return of this twist on the classic movie date: a seven-part Interactive Movie series at Garden Theatre in charming Downtown Winter Garden. The theater is also bringing back its beloved Classic Movie series, screening four must-see films like It's a Wonderful Life and Casablanca.

For interactive movies, movie-goers will get to dress to the theme of the film, participate in pre-show events like trivia and giveaways, and sing along to select musical films. At just $15 a ticket, these features will serve as a great addition to any Winter Garden date night. Check out the full schedule of interactive and classic films below!

A note about safety: Garden Theatre is implementing socially-distanced seating and selling a reduced number of tickets for most of the upcoming season, including for several movies. You'll also need to wear a mask and temperature checks will be required for entry. You can review the full safety measures here.
