Daily Bulletin: Movie Mania

Melissa Kossler Dutton

Summer is flying by, but there’s still time to catch a movie under the stars. Multiple Central Ohio venues show family-oriented movies outdoors throughout the summer. Pack your favorite snacks, grab a blanket and enjoy the show.

Shows typically start at dusk, so check when the sun will set before heading out. Some locations have activities before the movie.

Here’s a sampling of the season’s remaining offerings:
