New York City overflows with no-cost outdoor movie screenings each summer, with at least one FREE flick nearly every single evening in a park or garden this July. While a few series aim specifically for children, including RiverFlicks for Kids, most series sandwich their family films in between grown-up ones. Some series aren't for kids at all, or only feature one kid-friendly film—which is totally cool. This is New York City!
But rather than having you peruse all those different calendars and weeding out the movies for kids, we've done the work for you. Behold: More than two dozen FREE outdoor movies this July, all rated G or PG (with a couple of PG-13 titles thrown in), all organized by date. Rainy day? Scorching heat? We've added an indoor movie series that's only $1 per movie as a bonus listing, because some summer days require a little free air conditioning along with a free movie.
So pack your picnic, grab a blanket, and head out to one of our picks for the best family-friendly alfresco flicks this month. Need more? Check out our 100 Free Things To Do with Kids This Summer in NYC to save both your wallet and your sanity this school break.
