An evening at Missoula Outdoor Cinema


With a trial weekend in the summer of 2002, MOC was enormously well-attended from the start. The season has grown to fill every weekend of July and August, and the positive energy and community support of the first season continues each summer.

2017 marks our 15th Anniversary of Outdoor Cinema, and we’re celebrating with 15 of our fans’ all-time favorite MOC movies! We’re also trying to raise $15,000 for a desperately needed new screen and to help us continue this beloved community event for 15 more years. If you’d like to be an MOC sponsor, please email Rachael, the MOC Committee Chair.

A Missoula Event

MOC means summer in Missoula.

Missoulians from across town often arrive long before the show begins, watching their children play in the schoolyard, catching up with friends, and setting up their blankets and lawn chairs. They slowly settle into their spots and curl up to watch the show, snacking on MOC treats or homemade picnic dinners.

Each year, the NMCDC strives to bring you an eclectic mix of new, classic, children’s, independent, and perfect date night films. Check out this year’s summer lineup.

Things to Remember

  • Please leave pets and alcohol at home.
  • After the movie please be respectful of the neighborhood and exit the area quietly.
  • Help us clean-up the area and pick-up your trash as you depart.
  • Your donations help us bring movies to the neighborhood and the support the community efforts of the NMCDC.
