Free Outdoor Movies on Cape Cod
Summer Fun for the Entire Family 

During the summer months, open-air concerts and outdoor movies are a Cape Cod tradition! 

Beachgoers waiting for the feature film to beginIt's a Beautiful Evening for a Movie at Smugglers Beach in Yarmouth!

Families gather at the beach and on the village green to see old favorites like Shrek, ET, The Rookie, and other all-time classics, shown on a big screen under the stars.

It's kind of like a drive-in movie, only better. You're relaxing in your lawn chair, enjoying a Cape Cod summer evening - not packed into a car.

It's great fun, and it's free!

What to Bring to Movie Nights

Over the years, I've learned that there are two must-have items for movies at the beach or in the park:

  1. Bug spray/wipes

  2. Something to sit on

Bug Spray/Wipes

Yep, bug spray is #1 on the list. Here on the Cape, there's about an hour between dusk and full-on darkness when the "no see 'ems" (tiny little bitey gnats) come out in search of sweet-tasting humans. 

The best thing I've found to repel them is ... Repel.

It really does the trick to keep the little devils away!

Repel comes in a spray bottle and in wipes. I prefer the wipes because they're easy to carry, and one wipe each keeps my hubby and me bite-free for the entire evening.
We just swipe a wipe across our clothes and exposed skin, and we're all set!

Something to Sit On

A nice, soft blanket is perfect for movies at the beach because the sand is nice and soft to sit on. But for movies at the park? Well, I'm not a kid anymore. These days, sitting on the ground is just too darn hard on my delicate little bum. ;-) 

Here's how we relax comfortably at outdoor movies ...
