A Guide to Outdoor Movies In Orlando – Fall 2015 Edition

Summer Guide to Outdoor Movies in Orlando

By Samantha Rosenthal

With Orlando being home to a huge arts and culture scene, it’s no surprise there are many outdoor movie options for couples and families to enjoy, too. Our many venues for outdoor film viewings give lovebirds the chance to pack a picnic basket of snacks and watch a movie under the stars.

With fall finally here and temperatures getting cooler (from the 90s to 70s or lower) at night, it’s the perfect time to give you the lowdown on fall’s outdoor movies across Orlando (and we even threw in some holiday-inspired indoor films to catch as well). Enjoy!
