Las Vegas is home to numerous Free Movie Series. From classic films at the Clark County Library to new animated family favorites on the green at The District at Green Valley Ranch, Las Vegas has no shortage of movie showings that will please any movie goer regardless of age.

While there are dozens of movie theaters across the Valley, I am limiting these movie events to those that are Free for anyone. Many let you bring picnic baskets and watch movies under the stars, while others allow you to enjoy the classic with like minded fellows.

Regardless of your favorite genre, you are likely to find something that will stimulate the mind and bring tears, laughter and gasps of excitement. Enjoy.

A Monday Moment in Time

Yes folks, the Clark County Library system's Summerlin library has a lot more going on that musty old books and elderly librarians shushing you for laughing too loud. One Monday a month in the theater, they encourage you to laugh loudly to some of the classic comedies of old. While not as frequent as some of the other movie programs, the classic quality of the films in this series more than makes up for the quantity. Current Free Movie Schedule.

Movie Madness in North Vegas

North Las Vegas won't be left out of the free movie game this summer, and that is good news for those of us who live int he northeast part of the Valley. Movie Madness runs from from April 13th until October 5th one Friday a month. Movies begin at dusk, but festivities and vendors will be there starting at 6:30 PM. I've linked to reviews of the films.

Movie in the Park

These free family movies and concerts will light up the screen and bring tunes to the night on Fridays and Saturdays throughout March and April. "Bring your family, a picnic basket and a cozy blanket to enjoy these free, fun-filled evenings with your neighbors," Ross said.

Movies in the Square

If you love free movies with the kids then you're in luck as another Las Vegas family summer fave returns this June to the Town Square. This summer's Movies in the Square brings some of the biggest family movie hits to the big screen every Thursday night at sundown. Best of all it is free. This season starts on June 7th and runs all the way til August 23rd. See the Full Schedule of Free Summer Movies.

The Outdoor Picture Show

There are a ton of reasons to love The District at Green Valley Ranch. Shopping, food, music and all the rest, but for my ... um not money (it is FREE) the best thing The District has to offer is the Outdoor Picture Show. Free family films on the green. Grab a blanket and a picnic basket for all the flicks. Showings are every Friday and Saturday night at dusk. See the Full Schedule of Free Summer Movies.

Saturday Movie Matinee

The Clark County Library System brings us another amazing Free Movie Series with the Saturday Afternoon Matinee series in the Jewel Box theater at the Main Branch as well as the Auditorium at the Windmill branch.

Tuesday Afternoon at the Bijou

    Las Vegas is chock full of great FREE movie series. While most cater to families with small children this ongoing film series at the Clark County Library is catered more to seniors and adults with a thirst for older films. Usually organized around a theme, the movies are best viewed in sequence and discussions often break out after the showing. Movies start at 1:00 PM every Tuesday in the Clark County Library's Main Theater. This month's movies are. See the Complete Schedule of Free Movies.
