Gamecock Picture Show

In addition to offering movies in the Carolina Theatre, Gamecock Entertainment holds specialty movie screenings with our outdoor mobile movie theater, Gamecock Picture Show (GPS). We take advantage of the nice weather here in South Carolina showing your favorite films in locations such as Davis Field next to the Russell House or on the pool deck at The Strom Thurmond Wellness & Fitness Center!
