About the Millennium Park Summer Film Series
All seats within the pavilion’s seating bowl and space on the Great Lawn are free and first come, first served. Arrive early to snag a spot! Guests can bring their own food and beverages to the events, so pack a picnic and make a night out of it.
Bright enough to be completely visible in the daylight, the screen illuminates the entire viewing area with crisp, clear images and combines with the Pavilion’s concert-hall quality sound system to create one of the most memorable moviegoing experiences, no matter where you sit.
