Free Outdoor Summer Movies for Philly Families

Summer is the perfect time to spend quality time with family and friends, and nothing says "summer night" like attending a free outdoor movie under the stars. Many Philly families have made an outdoor film  a constant on their summer bucket list. But, if your family hasn't participated in this warm weather ritual before, no need to worry: Mommy Poppins Philadelphia has rounded up some of the best locations to see free outdoor movies both in the city as well as the 'burbs.

Generally speaking, most films begin at dusk, but be sure to arrive early to locate the optimal viewing spot. Pack some snacks, a blanket (and bug spray, too), and then sit back, relax and enjoy the show at one of these outdoor summer movie series in or near Philadelphia.

Be sure to check back often for the latest free movie series announcements.
