Free Outdoor Movies in Houston This Summer

Summer days in Houston need cool summer activities and water play to beat the heat, but summer evenings beg for a low-key activity that gets everyone out of the house. The solution? You take the kids to see a movie. You could try one of the Bayou City's drive-in movie theaters, but summer movies don't always require buying a ticket: summer nights are a great time to enjoy FREE kid-friendly outdoor movie screenings.

The movie screenings below are all happening live this summer! We recommend maintaining proper social distancing protocols to keep you and your family safe as you venture out of the house. 

As a reminder, the Texas DSHS recommends practicing social distancing to avoid catching or spreading COVID-19, and the CDC recommends using face coverings in public to help slow the spread of the virus.

Event schedules may be subject to last minute changes.
