2024 FREE Outdoor Summer Movies in Brooklyn

Check out our round up of outdoor summer movie series in Brooklyn!

By Meredith Kurnov, Editor & Publisher of Macaroni Kid Brooklyn NW June 18, 2024

Among the many not-to-miss summer experiences in NYC is a free outdoor movie in the park. If your kids are old enough to start a movie after sundown, make it a family affair (or date night)! Invite your friends, pack a picnic, and arrive early to catch the sunset! (Bonus: We recommend a packable legless chair for back support if you have one.)

Here's what on tap for free in Summer 2024:
Schedule includes Brooklyn Bridge Park Movie Under The Stars, Rooftop Films, FAB Fulton Flicks, Coney Island Flicks on the Beach, Paramount+ Movie Nights, NYC Parks Movies Under The Stars, Town Square presents Summer Starz, and Habana Outpost Movie Nights – more announced soon! Bookmark this article and check back!

Not sure if a movie is appropriate for your kiddo? Pro tip: check Common Sense Media for age recommendations.


Brooklyn events bolded. All movies begin after sunset. Check back, we will continue adding film screenings as they are announced!
