MOVIES IN THE PARKS
Chicagoans don’t take kindly to change (Marshall Field’s, Comiskey), so we’re especially pleased to see outdoor movies return to Grant Park as part of this citywide film series. Dr. No? Yes, please.
Through 9/16 The Chicago Outdoor Film Festival in Grant Park is no more, but that’s not to say there are no outdoor films in Grant Park. The city brings flicks back to the waterfront for the first time since 2009 as part of its summer-long series Movies in the Parks. August’s lineup: Dr No (8/16), A Raisin in the Sun (8/23), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (8/30). Free. See website for the full series schedule, including kid-friendly options, and a list of participating parks. All films at dusk. Grant Park, Balbo and Columbus. chicagoparkdistrict.com.
