100+ Free Summer Movies In Omaha (& Concerts)

Updated: April 24, 2018

If there are two things Omahans love, it’s FREE movies and FREE concerts. That’s the only explanation I’ve come up with as to why we have so many of them this summer. So if you’re looking for free summer movies in Omaha, you’re in the right place. And if you’re looking for free summer concerts in Omaha, you’ll find the days and times here, too.

Every week this summer, you’ll find concerts and movies for families and some you’ll want to find a babysitter before heading to. And, you’ll find live music and big screens are set up in every corner of the metro area! Assume most locations are in Omaha unless otherwise noted.
