Movie In The Park 2023 Guide

Who doesn’t love a good movie? And what better way to combine a good movie with summer than watching a good movie in the park under the stars! Especially after a hot day, there’s nothing like sitting back and relaxing with a movie outside as the sun and the temperature goes down. But it is summer, so don’t forget the bug spray!

Our Movies in the Park guide will help you find outdoor community movies near you, often free. So grab your favorite blanket or some chairs and head to the park for an outdoor movie showing.

All information is subject to change and we always recommend contacting the specific locations to verify conditions and availability, especially those that are weather dependent.

President and Founder of Identity Developments, LLC, the parent company of the McHenry Life website. My hope for McHenry Life is to create a resource and destination for the residents and businesses of McHenry County alike. A place where residents can discover new places to explore, fun events and ways to spend time, and then share those experiences with others. A place where businesses can connect with existing and potential customers, and not simply market their businesses, but share their own unique stories.
