Downtown Drive-in

In collaboration with Waterfront Park, Louisville Downtown Partnership is excited to announce the return of the outdoor movie night series Downtown Drive-Ins. Downtown Drive-Ins will transform Waterfront Park’s Brown-Forman Amphitheater into an outdoor theater experience, offering locals and visitors alike the chance to enjoy free movie screenings in the heart of the city.

The series will take place on select Friday nights through October, with the amphitheater open to the public one hour before sundown, when the movies start. Downtown Drive-Ins will include snacks and beer for purchase from local brewer Ten20 Craft Brewery, popcorn, and to-go “movie boxes” from Pig Beach BBQ, the adjacent restaurant. Movie-goers are also welcome to bring blankets and lawn chairs to the viewing.

No tickets are required for the outdoor film screenings, but guests are encouraged to arrive early to save their seats. The Downtown Drive-in events are weather-dependent. Dogs are allowed.
