Every Outdoor Movie Playing Around Seattle This Summer

<a href="http://www.photobyjordan.com/#0" target="_blank">Courtesy Jordan Nicholson Photo</a>

For six weeks or so, more than 70 mostly-free outdoor movies will be showing around the city in fields, parks, and even a 7-Eleven parking lot. All of which are -- literally -- cooler places than your apartment which still doesn't have air conditioning. So bring a blanket and some cash for the concession stand, and enjoy flicks that range from Ghostbusters and Goonies, to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But judging by how many times it shows up on this list, you'll probably just end up watching Coco a bunch.

Most of the movies will begin at dark (around 8), but some kick off a bit earlier with pre-screening activities. And if you need something to do post-flick, be sure to check out our Seattle Summer Events Guide, right here.
