Our 2018 Guide to East Bay outdoor movie screenings include family-friendly-ish movies all around the East Bay. We will be updating it all summer so stop back often.
If your kids are old enough to stay up late — or young enough not to know the difference — there are lots of places to watch an outdoor movie under the stars. Most of these venues will be offering snacks or kids activities in advance of the movie, so feel free to come early and play. Bring your own chairs and blankets.
Movies often start as soon as the sun goes down, around 8:15-8:45ish. But click through to verify start times!
Though we rarely see short-sleeves-in-the-evening temperatures in the Bay Area, summertime is the best chance we've got for outdoor movies that aren't at the Concord drive-in.
