The city announced its lineup of free movies in Millennium Park this morning, and it’s…pretty good! The series, which runs Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. from June 5 to August 21 at Pritzker Pavilion, kicks off next month with Hairspray!

New this year, the city tapped 14 local film festivals to program one movie each. So, Doc10 Film Festival picks Man on Wire, Black Harvest Film Festival picks Get Out, Reeling Film Festival picks Kinky Boots, etc. The new configuration makes for a conspicuous lack of duds, save for what might be the weirdest double feature ever in WALL-E and Crash on July 31.
