Movie Night at The Light - Pontchartrain Conservancy

Movie Night at The Light

Join us for family-friendly movie nights at the historic New Canal Lighthouse! 

Spend the sunset on the scenic Pontchartrain Lakefront and safely watch a film with your family in the company of other community members. Beginning in January 2021, we will host outdoor screenings of family-friendly (PG or G rating) movies at the Lighthouse located at 8001 Lakeshore Drive in New Orleans once a month, on the third Wednesday as soon as the sun sets.

Social distancing protocols will be followed to ensure the safety of all guests, volunteers, and staff. Films will be shown on a large inflatable screen. Guests will reserve a free space in advance. Attendance will be capped at 100 people (approximately 20-30 parties). Guests will be seated on the lawn, picnic style.

The first date for the movie series is January 20, 2021. The entire schedule of movies will be coming soon! 

We are partnering with community organizations, businesses, and individuals who would like to sponsor this event series. Sponsorships directly benefit the New Canal Lighthouse, which serves as a year-round environmental science educational resource for the community.
