Come to The Battery for a FREE outdoor showing of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
The family-friendly event takes place on Friday, December 10, 2021 with a showtime of 7 p.m.
This is a “movie under the stars” and NOT a drive-in movie — so you’ll want to bundle up.
Bring your lawn chairs and some fleece stadium blankets and hand warmers. Wear thick socks!
The movie will be shown on the The Plaza Green.
The Battery Atlanta does not permit coolers, outside alcoholic beverages, or glass containers.
The fine print does not completely ban outside food, though, so you can probably bring your own snacks. OR, grab a meal to-go from one of the restaurants at The Battery, and have a picnic before the show.

Yes, you can enjoy three hours of free parking in the Red, Purple and Green decks at The Battery Atlanta.
Make an outing of it!
Come early and have a visit with Santa at The Battery on Friday, starting at 4 p.m.
Santa will be behind the counter at his special Post Office, but you can pose for photos with him in the background.
This is a do-it-yourself FREE photo event, so bring your camera or mobile phone!
