Q: How do I get to the movie?

A: Most of our movies are located in neighborhood parks and parking can be limited. Check out the Know Before You Go post in the Facebook event on the afternoon before the movie for details. We highly encourage one of these alternate transportation methods:

  • Bike - Ride your own bicycle to the park or use Austin B-cycle when stations are within walking distance. Make sure your bicycle is equipped with lights as it is required by law, and it will be dark on your ride home. To find the safest bike route, please visit the City’s bike website or find a hike/bike trail.
  • Public Transport - If you use public transportation, please refer to the CapMetro website for cost info and bus/train routes.
  • Ride Sharing - Consider carpooling or use RideAustin and round-up to support APF!
Q: What happens if it's raining?

A: We always make an effort to protect wet and muddy grounds and work closely with the Parks & recreation Department, and park adoption groups, to make a determination about whether the movie will go forward as early as we can on the morning of the event.

The best places to get updates on weather calls are the individual Facebook event pages, which you can find by clicking on the events tab on our Facebook page.

We appreciate your patience as we try to make the best call for all involved.

Q: How can my company sponsor Movies in the Park?

A: If you want your company’s name and logo in front of thousands of park lovers, contact to learn more about our sponsor packages.

Q: How do I get one of your movies in my neighborhood?

A: We select our movie locations in partnership with park adopters and the Special Events Office at PARD at the beginning of each year, and once the schedule is set, we aren’t able add movies. However, you can always emails us at to let us know where you’d like to see us host a movie, and we’ll consider it for future seasons.

Movies in the Park is made possible by our partnership with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema's Rolling Roadshow
