Summer is a great time to stay up late and watch an outdoor movie! The City of Des Moines and many of the surrounding towns offer free outdoor movies in parks during the summer.

Check out our list below and get ready to enjoy a family-friendly movie with your friends and neighbors. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and snacks (and maybe some bug spray!) and enjoy a movie under the stars.

Movies typically start at dusk, or around 8:45 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Check the website to confirm movie and location.

The City of Des Moines canceled Free Flicks for 2020 due to COVID-19.
