Summer Movies Under the Stars

Popcorn Frights and the City of Miami Beach Present Summer Movies Under the Stars

Film series will be hosted at five different public parks throughout the City of Miami Beach for three weeks and will be free to all residents

Popcorn Frights and the City of Miami Beach are thrilled to announce a special three-week summer film series that will be hosted under the stars. From July 22 through August 5, the series will bring classics, family favorites, and exciting blockbusters across the city every Thursday and Sunday night starting at 8:15pm. All the events are free to the public and will be presented at five different public parks in Miami Beach, including Lummus Park, Collins Park, and Pride Park, among others. The program is dedicated to safely bringing the South Florida community together and lifting everyone’s spirits around the shared cinematic experiences that Popcorn Frights is known for.

The series kicks off on Thursday, July 22 with a newly restored presentation of Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning masterpiece JURASSIC PARK, and continues on Sunday, July 25 with a special 35th-anniversary celebration of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS featuring a who’s-who of ‘80s comedy stars, including Rick Moranis, Steve Martin, and Bill Murray.

Other highlights in the program include the spectacular blockbuster GODZILLA VS. KONG; the timeless dark comedy BEETLEJUICE starring Michael Keeton, Alec Baldwin, and Geena Davis; and the action-adventure LOVE AND MONSTERS, a fun, imaginative, heartfelt story starring Dylan O’Brien.

Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket, lawn chairs, drinks, snacks, and even pets to the movies to make themselves at home.

Celebrated as the largest genre film event in the Southeast U.S. and one of “The World’s 50 Best Genre Festivals” by MovieMaker Magazine, the 2021 Popcorn Frights Film Festival will take place as a hybrid experience with in-theater and virtual programming from August 12-19, 2021.
