Movies Under The Stars – Free Outdoor Movies In Burlington

Enjoy free outdoor movies under the stars all summer long throughout Burlington Ontario. The City of Burlington is once again hosting its summer series “Movies Under The Stars”. These outdoor movies are free to attend and a great way to meet your neighbours and explore new parks in other neighbourhoods. Kids will love the massive movie screen and the novelty of watching a family-friendly movie outside. Parents will love the way the kids can bounce back and forth from playground to playing on the grass to watching the movie.

What Free Outdoor Movies Are Playing in 2022?

Here is the list of movies scheduled for Movies Under The Stars in Burlington. Movies are shown on Thursdays and will start at 9 pm, and the locations rotate through different Burlington parks. All of the movies are rated G or PG (Dolittle and My Girl) and are a mix of live-action and animation.

August Movies

Rain Date

Aug. 25: Movie and Location TBD

If the weather isn’t conducive to an outdoor movie, the event will be cancelled and rescheduled to August 25th. Only 1 movie can be rescheduled to the rain date, therefore there is only one rain date. When the weather looks questionable, check the event status by following the City of Burlington Twitter account.

What To Bring To Movies Under The Stars

You don’t need a lot to make this casual outdoor activity with kids a great one. Here’s what we suggest bringing with you to the free outdoor Movies Under The Stars:

  • Camping chair or picnic blanket to sit on
  • Drinks and snacks for everyone
  • Wear your fave jammies
  • Bring a small blanket just in case the temp drops once the sun goes down
  • Bug spray – just in case
  • Something to do before the movie starts – a frisbee, a ball, a book, etc.

Each park has lots of parking, and there isn’t a bad seat in the house, so don’t rush to get there far in advance.
