Millennium Park announces Summer Film Series

Written by
Laura Rote

The fourth annual Summer Film Series returns to Millennium Park, and we think this year's lineup is sure to please most Chicagoans. You can see all your favorite Chicago classics and more this summer when the free film series returns to the lawn at Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Bring a blanket and catch films like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (can you believe that movie is 30 years old?) and A League of Their Own on the 40-foot LED screen in the heart of the city. This year’s lineup also includes an “audience choice” night, when you can vote for the movie you’d like to see most, and a special July double feature. The series will run on Tuesdays from June 21 to August 30 at 6:30pm.

Check out the full schedule below.

June 21, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
