Rained Out


Celebrating our 27th season, Movies in the Park is recognized as one of Nashville's best annual events! Brought to the city by the Nashville Scene, with support of the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation, Movies in the Park provides a fun-filled FREE event every Thursday evening of June, at Elmington Park.

The festivities kick off at 5pm with food truck vendors, games, and giveaways from our sponsors. Movies begin at sundown, typically around 8pm, and we are happy to have the Nashville Film Festival as our production partner again this year!  

Movies in the Park is a free-to-attend event. In case it rains, we have a scheduled a reshowing on June 30th.   


Get ready to bring the family for games, delicious fare from food trucks, contests, and awesome flicks with the Nashville Scene!

Q: Do I have to wear a mask? 
A: There is currently not a mask mandate in Davidson County. However, masks are still recommended when in large crowds and you are not able to be socially distant. We kindly ask that if you're in close proximity when ordering food from our vendors, interacting with our sponsors or other attendees you maintain a safe distance or wear a mask.
