free outdoor holiday movies houston

One of the things we look forward to every holiday season is watching our favorite Christmas movies, and there’s no better way to see them than on the big screen! While things are different than ever before this year, we’re happy to see that many parks, churches, and other venues across town will be hosting free, socially-distanced outdoor holiday movie nights this year. It’s a great chance to get in the Christmas spirit while still staying safe during these uncertain times.

There is no shortage of free outdoor and drive-in holiday movies in Houston this season. Here is a cheat sheet to keep you organized so you don’t miss your favorite. And make sure to check the websites of the venues at the bottom of this page for more up-to-date information as all events are subject to cancellation or rescheduling.
