Summer Outdoor Movies

After the winter that never wants to end, it’s hard to imagine being outside for more than 15 minutes, let alone watching a movie outside! But if all goes as planned, summer should arrive in June! Once it does, what better way to celebrate than watching a family movie outside under the stars? Lucky for us, many Lake County communities show movies — for free — outside in parks and at community pools*.

Check out this fabulous list of summer outdoor movies and let us know if there are any others. *Please check admission rates for movies shown at pools; most require an admission fee. Of course, all outdoor movies are weather dependent so please be sure to check with the host site if you are unsure about the weather policy. Some move indoors and some cancel. Little Lake County is not responsible for changes to the schedule after publishing or cancellations due to weather.
