Free Flicks
Free Flicks

Free Flicks is a summer-long series of outdoor movies sponsored by UnityPoint Health-Des Moines. The films will be shown on a 25-foot portable screen, and will begin after sunset around 9:00 p.m. Admission is free, blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged. People are free to bring their own snacks as concessions will not be provided for purchase.

Des Moines neighborhood associations are welcomed to host a Free Flicks in 2017. All dates for the 2016 season are set, but if your group is interested in sponsoring for 2017 please apply next year! For questions, please email us at parks@dmgov.org

Movies will not take place in the event of rain. Please continue to check our website, facebook, and twitter for updates. Remember, you can know before you go, with our text messaging notification service.
