Screenings Under the Stars, Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia

You’ll still want to bring your own picnic blanket, but helpings of kettle corn and popcorn are free when movies play at Penn’s Landing on Thursdays in July and August. Mainstream blockbusters like Dream Girls, The Blind Side, Eat, Pray, Love, and The King’s Speech light up the main plaza, with Philadelphia’s waterfront as a backdrop. From tapas to dim sum, the nearby Old City neighborhood has plenty of spots for a preshow dinner.
