Free outdoor movies in Orlando are very popular during the summer…and for good reason. On a beautiful night, there’s nothing better than watching a movie under the stars on a giant screen with your friends and family. Odds are you can probably find a family-friendly flick playing near you at least once a month.
Snuggle up under the stars; bring your own snacks and chairs or blanket for a memorable and fun night in Orlando. Arrive early to get a good spot and settle.
Before you go: please make sure to check each website as some of the movie events are seasonal and times are always subject to change. Updated June 2019.
