Triangle moviegoers have plenty of viewing options

studying, there's no better way to
relax than to catch a movie. The
Chapel Hill area offers plenty of
choices for the moviegoer. From the
latest Hollywood release to foreign
films to old classics, you can find
them all around Chapel Hill.
Four commercial movie theaters
are in Chapel Hill: the Carolina Blue

Theatre, the Ram Triple and the
Plaza. Classic movies can be seen at
the Chapel Hill Public Library weekly
