The Ultimate Guide to 2018’s Outdoor Movie Screenings

Pack your picnic and catch a movie under the stars

As far as we’re concerned, the year can be divided into fall, winter, and outdoor movie season. Thankfully, the Los Angeles weather means we can enjoy our picnics and al fresco flicks from April to October—but that adds up to a lot of screenings to keep track of. To make sure you never miss a chance to enjoy your favorite film, we’re compiling all the outdoor movies of the summer into one calendar, which we’ll update throughout the season as series announce their schedules.
