The Millennium Park Summer Film Series takes place on Tuesday nights (beginning at 6:30 pm) at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. This year the series runs from June 13 – September 5, 2017 (except Thursday, August 24 at 11:00 am). In addition, the Chicago Park District offers Movies in the Parks throughout the city. Like the main series, these events are free and open to the public. Here are the movies that will be shown in parks in or near the South Loop in the summer of 2017 (please let us know if we’ve missed something). Many are family focused, but some are geared to an adult audience. Hope you’re able to make it to at least one!
