Coming Up: Movie Nights at Rip Hewes Stadium

Movie nights at Rip Hewes Stadium

Between the usual holiday stress and the unusual challenges of 2020 as a whole, we could all use a break! Thank you, movie nights at Rip Hewes Stadium in Dothan! Grab the family, a blanket and lawn chair and come to the stadium this month and next for two opportunities to catch a flick while staying socially distanced outdoors.

Movies under the stars

Choose your spot out on the field or in the stands for movie nights at Rip Hewes Stadium. Bring your choice of seating arrangement (blankets or chairs) and you’re good to go.

Not only are you getting a chance to get out of the house for some family fun; this event helps out a good cause. Admission is a minimum of one canned good per person. All food collected will support the Wiregrass Area Food Bank, which provides vital services to residents in need throughout Southeast Alabama. Specifically, the Wiregrass Area Food Bank services Barbour, Coffee, Dale, Geneva, Henry and Houston counties.
