Night at the Museum

A newly recruited night security guard at the Museum of Natural History discovers that an ancient curse causes the animals and exhibits on display to come to life and wreak havoc.

The film stars Ben Stiller, Carla Gugino, Ricky Gervais, Robin Williams, Dick Van Dyke, Bill Cobbs, Rami Malik, and more.

Social Distancing & COVID-19 Precautions

Attendees will remain in their cars throughout the presentation, with a special program set-up for using the restrooms. Face masks are required at all times when outside of vehicles.

Businesses around Greater Houston and the State of Texas are opening up and individual social distancing practices vary from location to location. Masks are still strongly encouraged and recommended to help reduce the spread of the virus and help protect your neighbors.
