Your Austin Summer outdoor movie and concert calendar

Our new 2015 Free Austin Movie Calendar is out! Find it here.

Austinites love being outdoors, even when it's 100 degrees during the day and 99 at night. Check out this handy list of places to see free (or super-cheap) movies and concerts all Summer long. If you’re going to be a sweaty mess, you might as well have a good time.

Editor's Note: Since there will undoubtedly be more events that get scheduled, we'll be updating this list throughout the Summer on the first of every month. Got tips on a new outdoor movie or concert series? Leave 'em in the comments below.
