It’s time again for where to watch a movie outdoors this summer. There’s plenty of kid friendly movies to watch outside for free in Columbus this year. This year’s favorite trending movies include: Coco, Beauty and the Beast (2017), Cars 3, and Star Wars The Last Jedi. Adults can check out the Green Lawn Abbey’s Movies Under the Stars series for $5 per person, with fees going to the Abbey’s preservation efforts. Short North’s Screen on the Green, the Wex Drive-In, NightLight614, and the Gateway Plaza have more date-night style movies as well. Be sure to check movie status before you go, in case of weather.
