NightLight 615 reveals Nashville movie lineup, opens ticket sales

Grab the popcorn. NightLight 615, the popular outdoor movie screening in Nashville, returns in June with blockbuster films, craft beer, and food trucks.

The race to get NightLight 615 tickets is on. The annual 21+ outdoor movie series that takes over Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in the summer returns from June through October.

It’s important to have a game plan because the event is notorious for selling out quickly. Before we get into the schedule, here are two important dates to lock in:

  • Tuesday, May 7 | 7 p.m. | Season passes on sale
  • Wednesday, May 8 | 7 p.m. | General admission on sale

What to see

There are 10 movies queued up on Thursdays and Fridays, but we’ll share our editor picks.

  • June 14 | “Happy Gilmore”
  • July 18 | “Men in Black”
  • Aug. 8 | “Crazy, Stupid, Love”
  • Sept. 5 | “Bring It On”
  • Oct. 17 | “Hocus Pocus”

Eat, drink, listen

A pre-movie DJ will be spinning tracks (so arrive early and snag your spot). Once you’re settled, grab a sip from the featured breweries and a bite from local food trucks. Pro tip: Review some FAQs.
