Free Flicks


Free Flicks is a summer-long series of outdoor movie showings throughout the Des Moines area. 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 2015. All dates for the 2014 season are set, but if your group is interested in sponsoring for 2015 please apply next year! For questions, please contact Brian Funk -

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.
