Summer Nights Film Series

The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series
Doors open at 7 PM, Films begin at dusk

A favorite Indy summer tradition, The National Bank of Indianapolis Summer Nights Film Series returns to Newfields 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 15 nights of film will be shown—everything from black-and-white classics to modern blockbusters. 

 

Dates and films are subject to change.
