The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series
Doors open at 7 pm

Tickets on sale now

The National Bank of Indianapolis presents the Summer Nights Film Series, where you can watch movies under the stars every weekend at Newfields. Doors open at 7 pm, when you can enjoy a picnic dinner, music, and activities, followed by that night’s movie, which will begin when twilight turns to night (usually 9:30 pm). Over the summer, 19 movies will be shown—everything from black-and-white classics to modern blockbusters.

All you need is a picnic (with non-alcoholic beverages only), chairs (for the back row of each tier), and blankets (in case the chair row is full). Oh, and sunscreen and bug spray. No alcohol, pets, candles taller than 12 inches, or knives permitted. And if you want to travel light with just a chair and blanket, King David Dogs and Sun King Brewing Company will be there with franks and craft beers, respectively, to purchase.

This season's lineup features partnerships with Indianapolis LGBT Film Festival, IBE Film Festival, and Heartland Film.
