Free Summer Movies

It’s basically Summer in the city now and, even though I prefer to stay inside when it gets too hot, there are some fun things to do if you are around. One of the things is the free movies at the parks around the city. You can bring food, blanket, friends, and have some fun watching a movie. Here is the (big) list of the movies, dates and parks. You should check always before you go here, because they can always change time/movies/location.  Xx
