Milwaukee Summer Movie Guide

Ready for Some Great Movies in Unique Settings? Here’s the Summer Guide for Milwaukee…


Everyone knows that Milwaukee is the place to get your summer festivals fix.

Milwaukee summer movie fests

Like honestly, the list of Milwaukee fests is endless.


But in case fests aren’t really your thing, but you don’t want to sit at home and be a hermit all summer, the Milwaukee summer movie guide may be your thing.


From old classics to new blockbuster hits, there is something for everyone in the movie guide this summer.


And even into the fall!


Many of the locations hosting movie events go well into September and October.


And these movies aren’t only being hosted in theaters, either.


The unique locations of the movies are half the fun, in my opinion.


Here’s what you need to know about Milwaukee’s summer movies:


Film On The Hill (Humboldt Park)

If you’re a fan of Chill on the Hill, Film On The Hill is going to be a new favorite event of yours this summer.


On select summer Saturdays, two time-tested favorites and a new blockbuster will be screened in the park:


Ferris Bueller’s Day Off will be on July 30, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be on August 6, and Grease will be on September 3.


This is a free event for viewers of all ages.


Just be sure to bring your own chairs, blankets, snacks, etc.


Milwaukee Bike-In Movie Series (swing park under Holton Street Bridge)


Between the third Friday of each June through late October, the Milwaukee Bike-In Movie Series sets up a projector at the swing park beneath the Holton Street Bridge for free 8 p.m. screenings of movies.


This year’s film lineup includes Turbo Kid on June 17, followed by Labyrinth on July 15, Straight Outta Compton on August 19, Back To The Future on September 16, and Donnie Darko on October 21.

Paul’s Alley Cinema


You’ve never truly lived on the edge until you’ve gone to Paul Dorobialski’s makeshift movie house.


Well, hardly a movie house.


It’s an alleyway in Walker’s Point.


If you’re lucky enough to grab a folding chair from the loading dock outside Paul’s factory, you’re ready to experience a screening.


This isn’t your average movie house, so it makes sense that Paul wouldn’t be showing average movies.


This Friday’s selection is a 9 p.m. screening of the 1955 film The Man With The Golden Arm.


Paul’s picks are updated weekly.


So whether you want the classic experience of Ferris Bueller in the park, or are feeling a little more daring and would like to try a movie in an alleyway, the Milwaukee Summer Movie guide has got you covered.


And who knows?


Maybe alleyway movie houses are the new drive-ins. Some of us at Honda of Kenosha may even see you there!
