Moonbeam Outdoor Cinema is a location in the Capital Wasteland in 2277. It is located between Fordham Flash Memorial Field to the southwest, Hamilton's hideaway to the northwest and Big Town to the southeast.


According to Evan King, this is one of the three possible locations the Family live.[1]


Located directly northwest of Big Town, the Moonbeam cinema is a broken-down outdoor theater with a few cars and picnic tables. It seems to be a small base for super mutants, who are staging attacks on nearby Big Town. Super mutants (including overlords if the Broken Steel add-on is installed), depending on the player character's current level, can be found amongst the picnic tables.

A super mutant with a minigun and either another super mutant with a missile launcher or a centaur are often hiding in a nearby trailer. A little north of the cinema, a skeleton with a teddy bear can be found sitting on a small pier.

After The Waters of Life, there is a chance of a vertibird dropping off Enclave soldiers to the east of here.

Notable loot

  • One Pugilism Illustrated on one of the two picnic tables closest to the screen, in the middle part of this area.
