Around Town

South County Takes the Big Screen Outside

Providence Monthly Magazine ·

After a long day at the beach, wind down by grabbing a snack and sitting back to relax at one of three hot spots this summer for outdoor movies. Head on over to Ocean House’s Movie Nights on the Beach for dinner and a show every Tuesday from 7-10pm throughout July and  August. Pick your favorite selections from their “build your own” pizza bar – as well as salad options, desserts and a cash bar – before settling into a lounge chair on the sand to watch films such as Finding Dory (August 22) and The Secret Life of Pets (August 8). 

If you aren’t free on Tuesday nights, head on over to Weekapaug Inn on Wednesdays to sit back and relax for even more movie fun on the Inn’s spacious back lawn. Enjoy films such as Beauty and the Beast (August 9) and Pete’s Dragon (August 2) on their inflatable movie screen while munching on plenty of freshly-popped popcorn. Guests are also able to order light bites such as Chips ‘N’ Dip and Street Tacos from the Lawn menu, as well as selections from the SeaRoom during the film. 

If sitting on lounge chairs or the lawn isn’t for you, bring a blanket and travel in your truck or car to the Misquamicut Beach Drive-In. This July and August will feature classic movies such as Jaws (July 6), Back to the Future (August 3) and Footloose (August 17). Gates open at 6:30pm with the show beginning at 9:00pm
