Pittsburgh Movies in the Park

30 06 2011

Every summer a ton of parks in the Pittsburgh area host FREE movie in the park nights.  They’re spread all across the week at a ton of different locations…the city, North Hills, South Hills, East and West.  Just bring a blanket, snacks, and enjoy.   This year the County has a series at their parks featuring Classic Movies.  Wherever they are, they start at about 9PM or dusk.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, so if you know of any that I have missed, please comment and let everyone know!

Wow what a great list. I haven’t seen “Despicable Me” and I’m a freebie junkie 🙂
