SAN ANTONIO — The above video is from a story over Memorial Day weekend.
A movie under the stars near a picturesque San Antonio landmark? Sounds amazing!
Here's where you can enjoy one – for free.
Starting at sunset on Saturday, June 12, the Tower of the Americas will host "Movies in the Park" as it did prior to the pandemic. The series runs through December 11. Guests can watch a variety of films by Disney, Pixar, Marvel and more right near the 750-foot landmark along the San Antonio skyline.
Just remember to bring a blanket or some chairs and maybe even some bug spray to ward off the mosquitoes. The first movie to kick things off is a classic dating all the way back to 1994, The Lion King.
There are food and drinks available for purchase, too – but of course, feel free to bring your own refreshments.
The exact location for the Tower of the Americas is 739 East César E. Chávez Boulevard.
