“Free movie screenings, can bring food and drinks”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

I've gone to two movies at Miller Outdoor Theatre: Sound of Music singalong and Psycho on Halloween. Both were great experiences. You can bring chairs or blanket; the lawn is separated into a lawn chair side and a blanket side so everyone can see (though not everyone seems to realize it). We've brought pizza and beer, and have seen others bring all kinds of snacks and drinks. Fun for a cool night out.

“Independance day fireworks in the Park”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Always good to come a little early to this event so that you can get closer to the music. The best place for the fireworks however, was at the back where we ended up closer to Rice University and by the fountains.

“Fun, fun, fun”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We have attended performances at this venue several times and love it. We bring chairs and supper and sit on the hill to enjoy what the latest offering is. This is free and if you want to sit in the seating area you just have to show up at the box office that morning or before the performance to get a free ticket. The shows are usually on Friday and Saturday evenings. Check their website for offerings. They said that they have performances 8 months out of the year.

“It is an outdoor theater”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Located in Herman Park just outside of downtown the Miller Outdoor Theater always provides a great mix of entertainment during the year. For a good cheap (inexpensive) time, check this out.
