Duke Energy outdoor movie night features Star Wars’ ‘Rogue One’

SENECA – Duke Energy’s World of Energy at Oconee Nuclear Station is hosting a free outdoor movie night on July 15 at its point on Lake Keowee, featuring the latest Star Wars film, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” Showtime is at 9 p.m.

This is the eighth year Duke Energy has hosted outdoor movies for the community.

“It’s just another popular way we add to Duke Energy’s drive to strengthen our community,” World of Energy Manager Chris Rimel said. “It’s free. The World of Energy’s lake point is a perfect venue for a summertime movie night, as it has been for the last eight years. We welcome our neighbors.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs for seating; guests can also watch the movie from their boats near the Lake Keowee shoreline (near the U.S. 130 bridge at Oconee Nuclear Station).

Food and drinks are allowed, and concessions are available for purchase from local Boy Scout Troop 120. Oconee Nuclear Station’s United Way Committee will be selling snow cones. All purchases support these local organizations.

No alcoholic beverages are permitted on the grounds, and pets must be leashed.

Parking is available at the World of Energy, with additional parking across the street from the World of Energy entrance on U.S. 130. Look for directional road signs. Complimentary shuttle service from the overflow parking area to the World of Energy is provided, as well as transportation to the lake’s peninsula.
