If you’ve stepped outside lately you know summer is in full swing and in NYC that means lots of free outdoor movie screenings. We already posted about the 2016 film lineups of Rooftop Films and Summerscreen, but both have since revealed the live music portions as well.

Summerscreen begins tonight (7/6) in McCarren Park with a screening of tongue-in-cheek horror flick Scream and Juliana Huxtable will perform before the movie. It’s free with doors at 6 PM, the band at 7 PM and the movie at sundown. On July 13 it’s LVL UP playing before Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle; and on July 27, Cotillion will perform before a screening of 10 Things I Hate About You. The music acts for the 7/20, 8/3 and 8/10 screenings have yet to be announced. Full film/music schedule for Summerscreen is below.

Meanwhile, Rooftop Films has it’s own free program, the LOL Movie Series, which happens Tuesdays at Solar One (23rd St. at the East River in Manhattan). Here’s the schedule:
