Screenings Under the Stars Summer Movie Series at Penn’s Landing


There’s nothing like summer in the city! In Philadelphia, one benefit of living in town is the ability to attend events like the Screenings Under the Stars Summer Movie Series. Thursday nights in July and August, Philadelphians can enjoy free film screenings at the Penn’s Landing stage on the banks of the Delaware River — just bring a picnic blanket, a lawn chair, and your favorite movie snacks.

Regulars say that the outdoor amphitheater offers comfortable stadium seating and ensures no views are obstructed. Enjoy family-friendly films like La La Land, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lego Batman Movie at screenings that begin shortly after sundown (around 8 p.m. in August). Want to make an evening of it? Screenings Under the Stars can be just one stop in a night of family fun or on a casual date, as it easily pairs with an early dinner in Old City, or a few drinks and some selfies at nearby Spruce Street Harbor Park.
