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.
