Come on out to the lawn of the Long Center on Wednesday, August 12 when Do512 and Alamo Drafthouse present a very family friendly Austin Sound & Cinema with music from Calliope Musicals followed by The Neverending Story on the big screen. The fun starts around 6 p.m.


–> Food! Food trucks will be setup on the Long Center Terrace and will open at 6 p.m. Vendors include Garbo’s Lobster Rolls, Frank Hotdogs, Yeti Frozen Custard, Boomerang’s Meat Pies, The Peached Tortilla, Whole Foods and Uncle Louie G’s Italian Ice. YUM!


–> Free Music & Movie! Calliope Musicals will bring some cheerful vibes & tunes to the stage at 7:30 p.m. and will play until around 8:30 p.m. Then the classic 80’s kids film, The Neverending Story, will play shortly afterward, once it gets dark. We hope you’ll join us for this occasion and enjoy Falkor and Atreyu’s adventure on the big screen!



–> What to Bring: Arrive early go get a good spot. The Long Center lawn provides plenty of room to play around with the kids before everything starts to help them from getting antsy. Bring games or a ball to throw around if you’d like! Attendees are welcome to bring folding chairs (but will have to sit toward the back), blankets and personal coolers with non-alcoholic beverages. Please do not bring pets, glass containers or alcohol.

The event is absolutely free to attend! Parking at the Long Center garage costs $8 cash or credit. Click here for more parking info.

Parents, we totally understand that you might not want to keep the kids up late, but it’s certainly cool to come, picnic, enjoy the food trucks, the sights of the city, listen to some awesome local music and duck out early. Whatever works for your family.
