Free Movies at McLean Park

Watch a Free Movie in McLean ParkWhy spend a lot of money and a couple of hours in a dark movie theater when you can catch a flick for free under the stars at McLean Park in North Myrtle Beach?

Located in the heart of the Ocean Drive Beach section of town, this 10-acre city park offers plenty of room to stretch out and relax while watching a first-release feature film on the outdoor screen. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and enjoy hot popcorn and traditional theater snacks while taking in a family-friendly classic.

Weather permitting, all shows are held monthly on Fridays about 15 minutes after sunset to allow for proper viewing. All movies are rated G or PG so the whole family can join in the fun. There's even a playground nearby for kids who need to burn off some energy. Here's the lineup for the 2015 season of Movies at McLean:

* June 12, "Planes: Fire and Rescue": This animated film from the makers of the "Cars" movie series offers something for all ages, especially the kids. As a special addition to the movie, the North Myrtle Beach Fire & Rescue Department will be on hand to offer free firetruck tours.

* July 10, "The Lego Movie": This computer-animated action comedy brought the popular children's toy to the silver screen in 2014 and continues to be a popular flick among kids and adults.

* August 14, "Cinderella": See Disney's remake of this classic fairytale, but this version may be a bit scarier for smaller kids than the original. But the timeless rags-to-riches tale remains the focal point and still rings true with the new generation.

* October 9, "Paddington": Come out and see everyone's favorite British bear from the "Paddington Bear" book series hit the big screen. You might want to dress up warmer for the season finale in the fall.

Movies at McLean is a great affordable way to add a special family outing to your North Myrtle Beach vacation, so be sure to grab a beach chair or blanket and head over on the second Friday nights of the month from June to October!
