Movie buffs, grab a seat under the stars! Films of the "big screen" take to Millennium Park where a state-of-the-art, 40-foot LED screen will showcase both classics and new favorites all summer long.

The 5th annual Millennium Park Summer Film Series — which runs Tuesday evenings at  6:30 p.m.— is a FREE admission event. Chairs within the seating bowl of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion and space on the Great Lawn are first come, first served. Arrive early to snag a seat, or bring a lawn chair or blanket and sit back in this cinematic paradise. 

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 make for a memorable moviegoing experience, no matter where you sit. Pack a picnic and make a night of it. This year's lineup includes hit blockbusters, award-winning films, family classics and more.
