We’re looking at a rainy day today in Asheville, so what’s better than a movie night this evening? Join Local 604 Bottle Shop for their screening of Coil’s “Colour Sound Oblivion” and dive into a world of performance art. Some of the material is mature in theme, so they request that those only 18+ attend. The movie will begin at 8 and run until 11, so come for a fun night and get ready to enjoy beer, cider, sodas and more!


With a forecast of partly cloudy skies and 91 degree weather for Tuesday, take a look at Romantic Asheville’s hiking guides, waterfall trip lists and more!
