People have definitely started going back to the movies with summer blockbusters like: Top Gun Maverick, Jurassic World Dominion, Thor: Love and Thunder, and more. But it’s also a great time to get outside with family and friends to check out free outdoor movie screenings.
The number of events have definitely increased over the years, with lots more communities jumping on the bandwagon to offer the popular free outdoor movies. Some are even offering free popcorn and drinks. I don’t know about you, but I will never turn down free popcorn!
First, info on AMC’s $5 movies
Before getting to the free screenings, if you’re also looking to head to the theaters, AMC is offering a special reduced price ticket! You can get movie tickets for $5 at AMC theaters on Tuesdays. Check out more info HERE.
