Outdoor Movies in NYC

Sit back, relax and catch one of New York City’s outdoor movie screening. Ranging from rooftops and parks, enjoy numerous outdoor movie experiences all over Manhattan this summer with multiple venues and showings. What better way to spend a cozy night in while still admiring the NYC skyline and lights! Explore our curated list of where to catch an outdoor movie when you’re in Manhattan.

Bryant Park Movie Nights are every Sunday starting June 12 until August 21. Showings are free and the lawn opens at 5pm with the movie beginning at 8pm.

Watch a movie under the stars at the Rooftop Cinema Club all throughout the week. Prices range from $19.50 – $28.50 and the experience offers snacks, beverages, and a guaranteed amazing night.

Skyline Drive-In is a unique drive-in cinema experience situated on the East River with amazing views of the Manhattan Skyline. Perhaps you have seen it on SNL or multiple ads, that is because Skyline Drive-In is not just for showing movies – its for making them too, as a photo and filming location! Pricing begins at $19.50 per person.

This year marks the 23rd year of the Movie With A View and is part of the Free Summer Movies that take place throughout New York. It’s a free event organized by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy with a new theme each year. For 2023, it’s “We Are Family”.

Three different film screenings will take place at The Seaport Cinema on the roof of Pier 17 this year – and by the way, you’ll have a sensational view of the Brooklyn Bridge, the East River and Brooklyn!
