Outdoor summer movies have lots in common with other types of warm-weather fun — namely, that all you need is a blanket, a beverage and a couple of hours to fully enjoy them.
As usual, many of the films on this annual roundup are all-ages appropriate, with new and classic animation and comedy and romance — but also kinetic genre flicks and crowd pleasers.
Most are free or cheap, and start around dusk (8:30 p.m.). Some offer family-friendly activities beforehand, so plan ahead for those and to get the best seats. That will also give you time to check out any food trucks, adult beverages or bathroom routes (always crucial, especially with kids).
