2018 Summer Outdoor Movies in Rochester, MN + Beyond: A Roundup Guide

Outdoor Movies in Rochester MN and beyond

When the weather is right, being inside just feels wrong. One activity that always finds its way on my summer bucket list is an outdoor movie. I mean where else can you see a movie on the big screen, bring basically your own meal, and not worry about someone kicking the seat behind you? It doesn’t matter if you’ve seen the movie 100 times, it’s always way more fun outside. Between outdoor movies in Rochester, MN, the surrounding areas, and even a short trip North, you’ve got options, kid!
