Celebrating cinema and capturing the spirit of summer by watching films outdoors, under the stars in downtown Midland.

Movies on Main is a partnership between local businesses, individuals, and foundations who have one goal in mind: bring people of all ages together through the power of film.

Films are shown outdoors at roughly 9:00 pm Wednesday evenings at Ace Hardware in Downtown Midland. Movies on Main is free and open to the public.


The 2021 season of Movies on Main is hosted by Ace Hardware & Sports with Greater Midland providing pre-movie actives. A special Riverdays edition is presented by Midland Area Community Foundation.
