One of the best summer activities is returning to New York City: outdoor movies. While New Yorkers have long enjoyed the seasonal events, the pandemic has made outdoor cinemas (and drive-ins!) even more popular. 6sqft has put together a preliminary list of places to watch outdoor movies across the city, from a rooftop in Midtown Manhattan to the urban oasis that is the Queens Botanical Garden. As more movie lineups get released this summer, the list will be updated accordingly.

The pandemic brought a renewed interest in outdoor, drive-in movie theaters. And though indoor movie theaters are now open again, it seems like this fun, vintage activity is here to stay. From spots right here in Greenpoint and Astoria to those nearby in North Jersey to some cool retro locales a couple hours’ away, we’ve rounded up 18 spots to drive-in, snack on popcorn, and enjoy a good old-fashioned movie night this spring and summer.
