Columbus Families Can Catch a Show Under the Stars
Summer is flying by, but there’s still time to catch a movie under the stars. Multiple Central Ohio venues show family-oriented movies outdoors throughout the summer. Pack your favorite snacks, grab a blanket and enjoy the show.
Shows typically start at dusk, so check when the sun will set before heading out. Some locations have activities before the movie.
Here’s a sampling of the season’s remaining offerings:
