Miami Beach Announces New Season of Free Films Under the Stars

(Miami Beach, FL) Oct 28, 2020 -

Entering its 11th season, the Cinema Series at SoundScape Park returns next month — featuring free weekly movies curated by the City of Miami Beach Department of Tourism and Culture. The seven-month series begins Wednesday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. with “Swing Vote” (2008), a comedy film about an entire U.S. presidential election determined by the vote of one man.

“Every season brings a new selection of classics, family favorites and award-winning films for the community to enjoy,” noted Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber. “This year, SoundScape Park will look a little different with visual physical distance reminders drawn on the grass to keep moviegoers safely, responsibly and comfortably separated from those outside of their households.”

The films are projected onto a 7,000-square-foot wall of the New World Center through a freestanding state-of-the art visual and audio system. Other movies scheduled for the season include “Mary Poppins” (2018), “The Grinch” (2018), “La La Land” (2016), “Crazy Rich Asians” (2018), “Roman Holiday” (1953) and more.

Bring a blanket, pack a picnic basket and arrive early to get a seat as you enjoy cinema on the beautifully manicured grounds of SoundScape Park located at the southwest corner of Washington Avenue and 17 Street. Physical distancing guidelines will be followed and masks must also be worn. Subscribe to the MBArtsAndCulture weekly eblast to receive weekly updates on the movie series. For a complete schedule of the 2020-2021 SoundScape Cinema Series, visit or call 305.673.7577.
