2017 Lineup

Join us this summer for a spectacular celebration of 15 years of Missoula Outdoor Cinema (MOC)! So, what’s different this year? Well, this year YOU get to choose the movies! We looked back at all our movies and chose the top 34 of all time – the shows with the biggest crowds and most excitement throughout our 15 years. Then, we let our NMCDC Facebook fans vote for their favorites!

We’ve got the winners below, and now we just need to narrow down to the top 15. Stay tuned for the official lineup and schedule – coming in May!

This event is FREE to the public, but we encourage a $5 donation to help us cover the cost of the movies and to support this great Missoula summertime activity. Also this year, we’re raising money to purchase a new screen to accommodate the new widescreen format of most movies.

Movies show at sunset at the Head Start school (1001 Worden Ave.) on the Northside (map below). For more information on volunteer opportunities, history of the MOC, and important rules (no alcohol or dogs!), please see our MOC page. Hope you enjoy the show!
