Forget dark and enclosed movie theaters—outdoor cinemas are making a comeback this summer and we’ve never been more excited for movie night. From floating on an inflatable lounge to indulging in a vintage-inspired picnic on a great big lawn, here are three over the top outdoor movie destinations to consider for your next movie night.

Doors open at 7 pm and movies begin at 8 pm. Tickets are non-refundable and movies will show rain or shine.
