A couple of summers ago, my friends and I decided to go to a free movie screening at a park in Boston. It was a night full of fun, warm weather and great ambience.
Outdoor summer screenings can be a summer activity for everyone. They’re almost always cheap (if not free) and are often family inclusive. So if you’re also a Bostonian or are visiting the area, there are plenty of opportunities to check this off your summer bucket list!
The Boston Harbor Hotel’s waterfront will be hosting a series of classic movies on Friday evenings at dusk, ranging from The Lion King to Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
On Saturdays in July and August, catch the Family Film Festival in the Prudential Center’s South Garden. These nights will be filled with live entertainment, giveaways and activities for kids before the movies start at sundown.
The Boston Parks & Recreation Department, partnered with other Boston organizations, hosts Mayor Walsh’s Movie Nights, which are free showings held throughout August and September every year at different parks around Boston.
Another interesting movie venue I’ve seen is the Museum of Fine Arts, where free screenings are shown on their Huntington Avenue lawn once a month from June to September.
So gather a couple of lawn chairs, some snacks and good company, and enjoy the show!
