The Minneapolis Convention Center is offering complimentary feature films one night a month through April.

"Toy Story 4" kicks off MCC movies series Jan. 23

Minneapolis (Jan. 9, 2020) – For the second straight year, the Minneapolis Convention Center (MCC) is offering complimentary feature films one night a month through April, thanks to Movies Under the Domes, powered by Pepsi. The features set to be shown in one of the MCC’s auditoriums include “Toy Story 4,” “Green Book,” “The Lion King” and “Frozen II.” 

Date night, family night or a hang-out-with-friends night, each Movies Under the Domes evening is free to the public. Movie-goers must RSVP through Eventbrite for General Admission tickets, as seating is limited. The first 100 people through the door for each movie will receive a gift from Pepsi.

Doors open at 5 p.m., with showtime at 6:30 p.m. Here is this year’s line-up:

  • Jan. 23 – Toy Story 4 (G)
  • Feb. 27 – Green Book (PG-13)
  • March 19 – The Lion King (2019) (PG)
  • April 16 – Frozen II (PG)

“We talk a lot about the Minneapolis Convention Center being a ‘relationship building,’ and Movies Under the Domes is one of the events that helps strengthen the bonds between the MCC and the surrounding community,” said Minneapolis Convention Center Executive Director Jeff Johnson. “We’re excited to welcome Minneapolis residents, thank them for their support and offer everyone a fun, free night in our venue.”

Prior to the complimentary feature films, the Craft Bar and Lounge, located in the Convention Center, will be serving craft brews and food starting at 5 p.m. Popcorn, snacks and soda will also be available for purchase.
