Looking for a night outdoors without giving up the big screen? It's a strange question, but here's an option if you're looking for an answer: 

Movies at Target Field Station in Minneapolis. 

The big screen outside the Twins' ballpark will show five movies on varying Monday nights (7-9 p.m.) in June and July. These movies are free to the public and all you have to do is show up, sit down – it's a good idea to bring a blanket or chairs – and enjoy the flick. 

  • June 10: "Angels in the Outfield"
  • June 24: Movie to be determined
  • July 8: "Mary Poppins Returns"
  • July 15: "Spaceballs"
  • July 29: "Moana"

The movies are put on by Hennepin County. Separate from the movies, there are also trivia and fitness nights at Target Field Station on varying Thursdays during the summer. 

  • June 6: Trivia 7-8 p.m. 
  • June 20: Trivia 7-8 p.m. 
  • July 11: Trivia 7-8 p.m. 
  • July 25: Trivia 7-8 p.m. 
  • August 1: Outdoor fitness 5-6 p.m. 
  • August 15: Outdoor fitness 5-6 p.m. 
  • August 22: Outdoor fitness 5-6 p.m. 
  • August 29: Outdoor fitness 5-6 p.m. 

And at the Hennepin County Government Center South Plaza (300 N. 6th St.) there will be a weekly farmers market, yard games and piano music. 

  • Farmers market 10 a.m. - 1 p.m., Tuesdays through Oct. 29. 
  • Yard games 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., Wednesdays June 5 through Aug. 28.
