Going to the movies these days is not cheap, especially if you want to go as a family. I’ve put together just some of the options around Orange County where you can take the family to an outdoor movie for FREE. So find a park close to you and plan an outdoor movie night for some family fun. Bring your lawn chairs (low), blankets, and snacks, then just sit back and enjoy the show! Some locations have food trucks available for those who wish to purchase food there. Each location may have different rules so please make sure to check the referenced websites before planning your evening.
