Your Guide to Free Outdoor Summer Movies in Philadelphia – NBC10 Philadelphia


The summer tradition of outdoor movie nights in the city of Philadelphia is back thanks to Philadelphia Parks & Recreation! Be sure to bring your popcorn, snacks, blanket and chairs and head to a participating park, recreation center or playground nearest you.

The series of 12 screenings is free for interested moviegoers of all ages and runs from July to September.

Guests can enjoy movie nights at local outdoor venues in Philadelphia, such as FDR Park, Thomas Mitchell Playground, Roosevelt Playground, and DiSilvestro Playground.

This year’s series will feature fan-favorite movies and family movies, including “Black Panther,” “Hotel Transylvania,” “Men in Black,” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.”

The first screening this summer was “Spider-Man: Far From Home” on July 8 at FDR Park, but there are plenty more to enjoy. Next up is “The Croods: A New Age” at Thomas Mitchell Playground on Wednesday, July 13 at 8:45 p.m.

You can view the full schedule of movies, including pop-up “theater” locations here.

If you’re going to catch a movie, movies will start around dusk for each showing in the series. The last screening, “Sing,” on September 16, starts at 7:22 p.m., so it won’t be that late at night for your family.

Cancellations due to rain are possible. Be sure to refer to program for updates before heading out and popping your popcorn.
