Millennium Park Summer Film Series

June 24, 2014 - August 26, 2014
Calling all movie buffs! Head to Millennium Park on Tuesday evenings this summer to enjoy free movies at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. It's now home to the latest and most sophisticated outdoor screen with sound projected from the Pavilion's state-of-the-art sound system. The images are bright, clear and visible from the front row to the back of the Great Lawn, so there isn't a bad seat in the park! Be sure to grab a blanket and pack a picnic dinner to enjoy with your friends and family.

Fun fact: the screen measures 40 feet long and 22.5 feet high with an LED system and technology that is similar to that of a giant-screen television.
