Greater Pittsburgh Movies in the Park 2012

This post may contain affiliate links. For more details, please view our full disclosure.

Summer time means movies in the park, and they start this month!  So excited…a theater experience where you can take little kids and not stress…as much.  🙂  Or you could just take your hunny.  Oh, and they’re free.  I feel like this list is pretty exhaustive, but if there are some more that you know about, please alert me and I will add them to the list.  All movies marked with an asterisk* are part of the Books to Life series coordinated by Allegheny County Parks  Department and fall on Saturdays.  Movies all start at dusk, which I tend to consider between 8 and 9 PM.

    That’s awesome that they have so many of these free movies in Pittsburgh. I don’t think they do anything like that here in Vancouver. By the way, great work compiling all these showings for all the Pittsburgh peeps.
