Default big screen question

I think the Big Screens are only on the Liberty and Freedom, right? Does anyone know how often they change the movies or concerts on them? Last time I went they had things playing (on the Liberty) like CARS, Tina Turner, Phantom on Opera, etc. We are thinking of going on Liberty (or Freedom) again and don't want to see the same movies on the big screen.

we just got back from the Liberty and watched, Cars, Night at the Museum, Shaggy Dog and Gaurdian. They had a couple of concerts, Beach Boys, Cher, and not sure who else. Hope this helps. We would love to see them extend the screens to other ships. It was very nice sitting outside fresh air, enjoying a movie almost like a drive-in minus the steamy windows.

Default Big screen

We really enjoyed the big screen. I do wish they would of had concerts on the screen during the day. Instead they repeated a taped shore excursion. We must of saw the same one over a about 50 times.

So when do they play movies? Just at night or after dark?
Thanks,

They showed the movies at about 8 or 8 30 at night. concerts where about 6 or so and some music vids where on during the day. Not alot of vids but some or maybe I should say a couple. the movies though where at night with a differnt one each night.

I think I would enjoy laying out on the deck watching a movie. Do they have plans of adding these to any of the older ships?

I think all cruise lines are going to follow suit on this. I was on Princess recently and they played a Jmmy Buffet concert on the big screen under the stars. It was great for a night at sea on the Caribbean !

We enjoyed the MUTS or Movie Under The Stars when we were on the Grand.

Believe it or not - it didn't get crowded AT all! Which totally surprised me. Of course, the movie is also playing during one of the shows also. Usually plays at around 8ish and 10:30ish.

When MUTS first appeared on the Grand Princess (I think this was the first big screen at sea) you had to get a ticket to attend the movie at night. It was very popular! The last time we sailed Princess the thrill was gone, and you could just walk up and watch the movie. Of course, that's the way it is on Carnival now too. When we sailed "Liberty" recently, there weren't any big crowds at all for the evening movie. It was great.
I know you'll enjoy the big screen.
