Mariners' Wharf Film Festival

Mariners' Wharf Film Festival

Tuesday, June 22, 2021
8:30 PM

Relive the drive-in movie experience--sans the car--with Elizabeth City’s beautiful waterfront at Mariners’ Wharf Park as the backdrop. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and relax!

Films are shown on a large screen on eight consecutive Tuesdays at 8:30 PM starting in June. Have dinner in one of our downtown restaurants or pubs prior to the movie or bring a picnic to the park to enjoy. Popcorn and drinks available for purchase during the movie, provided by RCE Theaters.

*If raining, we'll reschedule!*

Movies shown during the annual Mariners' Wharf Film Festival have traditionally been the black and white “classics” from the 1930s through the 1960s, but a few more recent movies from different genres have been chosen this year. There will still be standard classics, along with a mix of other types of films including more recent dramas, comedies, romantic comedies, adventure, fantasy, biography, and even a corny old Godzilla movie. 

There is no admission, and all movies are free to the public as a community event coordinated by Elizabeth City Downtown, Inc. in partnership with locally-owned RCE Theaters. Movie-goers are encouraged to pack a picnic or order takeout and come early, or visit one of the downtown restaurants prior to the start of the movie. It’s a great time to gather as a community and enjoy the waterfront before and during the entertainment. Popcorn and drinks will be sold on site.
