Time Out says

Pack your own popcorn, bring a blanket and enjoy another season of free outdoor movie screenings during the Millennium Park Summer Film Series. In honor of the Year of Chicago Theatre, this summer's lineup was curated by 13 local theater companies, which means that you'll find a few stage adaptations on the list, including the 1962 musical The Music Man, 2016 Academy Award best picture winner Moonlight (based on a play written by Steppenwolf ensemble member Tarell Alvin McCraney) and 10 Things I Hate About You (an updated retelling of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew). The lineup also includes superhero movies (Black Panther, Wonder Woman), foreign films (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and kid-friendly flicks (Inside Out, The Muppet Movie). Take a look at the complete Millennium Park Summer Film Series slate below.
