Five Spots to Catch an Outdoor Movie in New Orleans

View as Map

Outdoor film screenings really kick off in New Orleans in early spring; before the sizzling heat and muck-like humidity roll in to town. But before the summer hibernation into overly-chilled air conditioned dens begins, there are still some spots around town to to kick back outside and watch a movie. The New Orleans Film Society's Moonlight Movies (formerly Movies to Geaux) still has three flicks left in its series, starting with tonight's free showing of "The Triplets of Belleville" at the Latter Library branch Uptown. Those searching for a family-friendly scene in the 'burbs can head to Kenner's Rivertown Movies in the Park for free movies on a 25-foot screen, and taking us through the summer, The W French Quarter is teaming up with SoBou for their Sunday Cinema shindig on the W courtyard. Is there an outdoor movie series or special one-time showing that we missed? Do hit up the tipline or let us know in the comments section below and we'll update this lil' movie map.
