In 2005, JHU Summer and Intersession Programs launched the first season of Hopkins Summer Outdoor Films. Since that time it has become increasingly popular, drawing weekly audiences of 300 to 500 people from the Hopkins campus and surrounding communities.
Each year throughout June and July, family-friendly movies are presented on Friday nights. These free films are shown on a giant screen on the Keyser Quad lawn, with the historic Gilman Hall clock tower as a backdrop.
Guests are invited to bring low-profile beach chairs, blankets and snacks. For-sale items are also provided by Chesapeake Foods.
