Movies in the Park (Downtown)

Huntsville Historic Foundation is once again sponsoring this summer favorite. While these movies aren’t indoors, since they occur in the evening it’s bound to be a little cooler, right? Festivities begin at 6PM, with face painting, magicians, and Family Fun Hour provided by the YMCA.

Food trucks and vendors will begin setting up at 5pm, so arrive early with blankets and lawn chairs and grab a bite while waiting for the movie to begin.  Big Spring Park East is in the Entertainment District, steps away from courthouse square restaurants where you may purchase your beverage of choice.


June 12 – Maleficent
July 10 – Princess Bride
August 14 – Despicable Me

Movies in the Park (Providence)

This summer there are not one but two options for people who enjoy catching free movies outside! That’s because the Village of Providence is also offering a summer of movies in their own “park” (the large green space on Providence Main Street right next to Mellow Mushroom). Movies are free and open to the public and begin at dusk, usually between 7:30 – 8:30 p.m.
