October is one of my favorite months with the Exceeding Expectations kids.  As you all know, our top priority for the kids is, and always will be, education.

10 Cool Outdoor Cinemas Around the World


Watching a movie on a big screen al fresco ranks among our most memorable travel experiences. We’ve watched films under the night sky and stars in Munich, Paris and Denver — each experience was unique in its setting and cultural flavor. All three were festive outings that included friends, picnics and wine. Unfortunately, there aren’t an abundance of outdoor cinemas around the world (maybe this will change over the years), but below is a list of ten that are just beginning to launch their summer screenings (note that locations in Australia, which offers several outdoor cinemas, are not included as their summer season is over).
