Moonbeam Outdoor Cinema is a location in the Capital Wasteland.


According to Evan King, this is one of the possible locations where The Family has been spotted.


The Moonbeam is a broken-down outdoor theater with a few cars and picnic tables. It seems to be a small base for super mutants, staging attacks on nearby Big Town.



Super mutants (including overlords if the Broken Steel add-on is installed), depending on the player's current level, can be found amongst the picnic tables. A super mutant with a minigun, accompanied by either another super mutant with a missile launcher, or a centaur, may be hiding in a nearby trailer.

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

Notable loot

  • Pugilism Illustrated: On a picnic table in the middle part of this area. Nearby, there are first aid boxes.
  • Just a bit to the north west is an old jetty with five ammunition boxes: two on top of the wooden construction and three on the ground level next to the wreckage of a small boat. Some of these are locked very easy, easy and average.
  • Directly north (east of Hamilton's hideaway) is a large boat with an easy locked safe.

Related quest


  • Fast traveling here will place you in between 2-3 super mutants (unless they are dead and haven't respawned yet), so it may be safer to walk here from Big Town or Hamilton's hideaway.


Moonbeam Outdoor Cinema only appears in Fallout 3.
