East Bay Outdoor Summer Movie Round-Up

If your kids can stay up well past 9 pm, there are a few outdoor movies you can see for FREE. While you can usually just show up, this year will very likely involve pre-registration so click on through to the ones you like most to snag your spot!

Our 2021 Guide to East Bay outdoor movie screenings includes family-friendly-ish movies all around the East Bay. We will be updating it all summer so stop back often. This post contains affiliate links.

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 low chairs and blankets. Most are FREE.


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.
