Best Outdoor Place to Watch a Movie 

San Antonio Museum of Art
200 W Jones, (210) 978-8100; (210) 212-9373, samuseum.org; slabcinema.com

Rick and Angela Martinez’s Slab Cinema has been “building community through outdoor movie events” since its inception in 2004 (on its namesake concrete slab across from La Tuna) and continues to expand its scope by screening kid-friendly, nostalgic and grown-up films in a growing list of places. While we’re looking forward to seeing how their Movies by Moonlight series fares in the move from Hemisfair to Travis Park in June, we can’t get enough of their pop-ups on SAMA’s serene lawn. Initiated with the cleverly curated Family Flicks series, the Slab/SAMA collab recently branched out with a bar-equipped screening of Much Ado About Nothing—an adult-focused outing the museum plans to continue this summer in conjunction with the exhibition “Matisse: Life in Color.”
