Time Out says

Hosted by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), the annual Millennium Park Summer Film Series brings eight weeks of free movie showings to a 40-foot LED screen at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. While you’ll find a respectable amount of blockbusters on the lineup (hello, Encanto and Dirty Dancing), many of the films on this year’s schedule are inspired by the 2022 Year of Chicago Dance, including the Lin Manuel Miranda musical In the Heights and teen dance romance Save the Last Dance. Take a look through the full list of screenings below and start planning your weeknight movie dates. 

July 12: In the Heights

July 19: Encanto

July 26: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

August 2: Dirty Dancing

August 9: Knives Out

August 16: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings

August 23: Save the Last Dance

August 30: Strictly Ballroom
