Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: Pittsburgh Parks and Recreation Recreates the Drive-In With Outdoor Movies in the Park

Schenley Park. Many people recall movies at the drive-in theater with fond memories. Though there are not many drive-in movie theaters left, some people still make the trek to see a movie under the stars. Pittsburgh residents know that they still appreciate outdoor movies as the Pennsylvania city has one of the largest amount of remaining drive-ins in the country. However, Pittsburgh Parks and Recreation is bringing even more outdoor cinema screenings to the area with portable, inflatable screens and movies in the parks. At Pittsburgh's outdoor movie screenings, the admission is free and a car is not required. Movies are being shown in parks all around the Pittsburgh area so there is sure to be one near you. They usually screen popular family-friendly films such as Star Wars: The Clone Wars, WALL-E, Jumper, Hotel for Dogs, Escape 2 Africa, Madagascar, Iron Man, The Mummy III, Mamma Mia! and Slumdog Millionaire. Movie-goers should bring blankets and lawn chairs, as well as snacks and beverages, although alcohol and glass bottles are not allowed. Most movies in the parks will continue until the end of August. • Schenley Park, Flagstaff Hill on Sundays & Wednesdays. • East Liberty, Beatty Street behind the Carnegie Library on Mondays. • West End / Elliot Overlook on Tuesdays. • Brookline Memorial Park, Oakridge Street on Thursdays. • Arsenal Park, 39th and Butler Streets in Lawrenceville on Fridays. • Riverview Park, Observatory Hill on Saturdays. • Grandview Park, Bailey Avenue, Mt.
