Movies at the Rock is presented by the Historic Valdese Foundation and the Valdese Main Street Program. Through a year-long fundraiser, projector equipment & a projector screen was purchased in the Fall of 2017 to make showing free movies possible in Valdese. The Old Rock School aims to show one free movie each month to the public. The movies will be themed based on Holidays, community events, or target audiences. The Old Rock School auditorium can hold up to 500 occupants and all seats will filled on a first come first serve basis. Registration for each movie will be made available on this page once the movie is announced.
