You can always cool off at the multiplex taking in this year’s best summer movies, but outdoor movies—including classics, recent hits and family favorites—are right at the top of the best things to do in the summer in Chicago. Spread a blanket for free screenings in neighborhood parks, Millennium Park or the new Park at Wrigley. This year, green spaces throughout the city will be showing flicks like Black Panther, Dirty Dancing, Home Alone and Get Out. Next to outdoor dining, outdoor movies are one of our favorite things to do in the open air.
