The Chicago Park District has been bringing movies to the parks for sixteen years making summertime in Chicago even more special. Grab a blanket and picnic dinner and head over for a movie under the stars. It really does make you appreciate all the great things about Chicago summers! Movies in the park kicks off on June 4, 2016 and features more than 250 outdoor screenings of current and classic movies in parks across the city. All movies begin at dusk, weather permitting. Movies are shown at parks throughout the city so make sure to check your favorite park or maybe take a short trek to another park to see your favorite movie.
Call 312-742-1134 for daily listings and weather-related cancellations.
