The Portland metro has an abundance of summertime movies in local parks. Find a complete list of Portland’s movies in the parks along with Hillsboro, Beaverton, Tigard, Lake Oswego, Milwaukie, Oregon City, Gresham and Vancouver movie series.
Best of all, summer movies in the parks are free to attend.
Since restrictions in Oregon were just lifted, not all of the cities in the metro area have announced their summer movie schedules yet. I will update this post as soon as more information is available.
Make the most out of your park movie by bringing all the outdoor movie essentials:
- low back chairs
- blankets and pillows
- snacks and drinks
- bug repellent
Now that you’ve been briefed on your movie checklist, here are a few other summertime cinema events you should know about:
- Enjoy $1 Family Flicks at Regal Cinemas’ Summer Movie Express
- Drive-In Movies at OMSI
- Watch Movies at Lloyd Center’s Rooftop Cinema
- Drive-In Movies at the Portland Expo Center
