Chicago: Movies in the Parks 2013 lineup


Summer is practically upon us and there are so many free film events going on across the country. Out in Chicago, the Movies in the Parks series will launch in June and run through September in various parks throughout the city. The outdoor screening series is in its 13th year. Admission is free.

The first film will be Rise of the Guardians on June 13th at Ken-Well Park. Other films screening over the summer include Skyfall, Spaceballs, The Amazing Spider-Man, Goonies, Life of Pi, Back to the Future, Men in Black III, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and ParaNorman.

Also, there are two Bollywood film music and dance medleys. Awesome.
