Chicago Summer Series: Movies at Millennium Park

If you’re in search of fun Chicago Summer activities:

Whether you live or are going to visit Chicago, I will say it time and time again. There’s nothing like a Chicago Summer, hot days, sunny skies, and the liveliness of the city makes it magical. One of my favorite summer activities is the Millennium Park Summer Film Series. Movies at the Park will kick off on June 21st with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Go back every Tuesday from June 21st to August 30th, 2016 at 6:30pm. Join a crowd of people at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion and the Great Lawn.
