Early this year, many event spaces shut their doors to the public. Plagued by the coronavirus, the city’s entertainment spaces were left sitting and dark. But, if Atlanta is anything, it is resilient. Now, entertainment venues of all sorts have modified their space to welcome spectators just in time for the holidays. We’ve curated a short list of drive-in and walk-through spaces—plus one streamable classic—for you and your family to enjoy the holiday season safely.

PRISM: Winter Lights
Date: Through January 31
Time: The park is open 6 a.m.-11 p.m. daily
Location: Woodruff Park
Price: Free

Back for its second year, PRISM: Winter Lights at Woodruff Park, presented by the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District and curated by Dashboard, is a two-month art exhibition displaying works by artists from around the country. This year’s show explores the theme of water and features three light-based landmark sculptures installed on the park’s main lawn. Additionally, Arts & Entertainment Atlanta will pilot a projection mapping effort that showcases animated artwork by local artists on the park’s International Peace Fountain water wall. Featured artists include MaDora Frey, Ellex Swavoni, Jason Sweet, Kris Pilcher, NNEKKAA, Amelia Carley and Joseph Peragine.
