The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series

The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series
Doors open at 7 PM & Film begins at dusk

A favorite Indy summer tradition, The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series returns this year to Newfields on Fridays and select Saturdays this June, July, and August. Bring your family and friends to watch movies under the stars. All you need is a chair or a blanket, and a pillow or two; snacks and drinks will be available for purchase. Come early to play a round of trivia, learn a new dance, savor your own picnic (with non-alcoholic beverages only), snap a selfie in a photobooth, or enjoy the sunset. For those who like to be prepared, sunscreen and bug spray are always a good idea. 


Doors open at 7 PM, and the evening will kick off with music and activities before the screening. The movie will begin as twilight turns to night, over the summer 17 nights of film will be shown—everything from black-and-white classics to modern blockbusters. 

Individual tickets are $9 for members and $12 for public.


Guest curator and film scholar, Coye Lloyd returns this year to collaboratively select the 2023 Summer Nights lineup and introduce the films. To find out more about Lloyd and her work, please visit
