Summer nights are just made for sitting outside wrapped up under the stars—it’s a fact of life.

Whether you’re looking for a chilled out date with your beau, a picnic with the fam, or a catch-up with your crew, nothing beats watching an outdoor movie on a warm balmy evening. Skip the hot, sticky movie theatres and catch one of Movies In Parks free outdoor movies running from January to April. 

From the latest blockbuster hits to old-school classics, there is without a doubt a film for everyone to enjoy this Summer.
