Movies in the Park Lynchburg

Bring your family, friends, a blanket or chair and join Lynchburg Parks & Recreation and MedExpress for the second Movies in the Park Summer Season! This summer, we’re hosting five Movies in the Park, from May – September, where  Lynchburg residents and their families and friends can catch a free flick under the stars at two of the city’s most beautiful parks.  Yep! You heard it! This year we’re expanding to two parks: Riverside and Riverfront Park!

Before the movie starts, grab some food from our amazing local food trucks or downtown restaurants (see below) on-site and explore the park, meet our vendors and sponsors, and hang out in the great outdoors! Screening times for each movie and parking maps can be found below. Should the weather take a turn for the worst at any of our screenings, a rain date will be established and announced through all social media outlets. Each screening is also totally BYOCOB – Bring Your Own Chair or Blanket – so make sure to come prepared. Admission and parking are FREE.
