Are you a movie lover who is looking for something to do during the summer nights? Here is a list of different movies to watch outside at parks and beaches. While most of the events on this list are free, some may ask for a ticket price. Check the website because dates and times are subject to change. 

Here are some tips before you head out:

  •  Check event’s website before heading out. Some venues may cancel movie dates due to inclement weather.
