Outdoor summer movies in Westchester and the Hudson Valley are a great way to take advantage of summertime, with its looser schedules and later bedtimes.

We’ve rounded up an assortment of outdoor flicks for your family’s enjoyment—films both old and new, and for a range of ages, with the added appeal of a Hudson River view or sand in your shoes. Some offer added amenities like pre-film entertainment (from live bands to magic shows and more), complimentary refreshments, or food for purchase. But all have one thing in common: FREE summer fun! 

For another way of enjoying outdoor movies, check out our roundup of drive-in movie theaters. If music is more your scene, we've got you covered if you're looking for outdoor concerts to attend in the region. And don't forget to consult our complete Summer Activity Guide or Family Activity Calendar.
