by Chicago Bucket List


While it may only be beginning to feel like spring, Summertime Chi will be here before you know it, and we’re looking forward to everything that comes with it: long days on the water, lively street festivals, and of course, outdoor movies at Millenium Park.

The Millennium Park Summer Film Series has been a beloved tradition in Chicago for over a decade, and it draws thousands of visitors each year. With the night sky and the city of Chicago as the backdrop, the atmosphere is hard to beat. The program is slated to return this July and typically features a diverse mix of films, from timeless classics to modern favorites and documentaries to kid-friendly screenings.
