Who can resist a night under the stars with a classic movie and the smell of popcorn wafting through the air? Whether young or old, local or visiting, the AFF Outdoor Film Experience fits the bill for good times. 


It’s outdoors. It’s movies. It’s an unforgettable Experience!


For the past 15 years, on Friday nights from July through August, the Atlantic Film Festival has delivered an entertaining outdoor film experience throughout Halifax – a larger-than-life inflatable screen showing classic movies under the open sky. With as many as 2000+ movie-goers coming together for each screening – all toting their lawn chairs, blankets, picnics and favourite company – this open-air cinema has a unique festival atmosphere that must be experienced first-hand.


While the theme changes from one year to the next, the objective remains:


• to bring the community together.
• to enjoy the film viewing experience in unique outdoor settings.
• to set the stage for the upcoming Atlantic Film Festival.




Unfortunately, outdoor film screenings are sometimes cancelled due to rain or excessive wind but every effort is made, according to current and forecasted weather conditions, to make each screening happen.


Screening cancellations will be announced by 5PM, the day of the screening, at as well as via our FacebookTwitter and Instagram accounts. We will also do our best to let local media outlets know so that they can get the message out to the public. Weather updates and cancellations can also be heard by tuning into 101.3 Virgin Radio. Unless communicated, cancelled films will not be re-scheduled.
