Chicago’s 10th annual Outdoor Film Festivalis like a drive-in movie on steroids. With a state-of-the-art sound system and gigantic screen against the backdrop of the nighttime cityscape, this free event promises a moviegoing experience unlike any other in the world.
This year’s film lineup on consecutive Tuesday evenings July 14 through August 25 features cinema classics Sunset Boulevard, Duck Soup, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Born Yesterday, Psycho, Young Mr. Lincoln, and Tootsie.
Screenings are at Butler Field (Lake Shore Drive and Monroe Drive) in Grant Park and begin at sunset. Arrive at 8:15 on opening night for a special appearance by film critic Richard Roeper, who will introduce and discuss Sunset Boulevard.
There are lots of things you can bring to the movies – including blankets, chairs and food – and a few things you can’t – like pets. See the complete checklist.

The expanded 15th annual Sedona International Film Festival promises a week of Oscar-winning movies, directors and nominees, more opportunities to see the most popular films, TCM’s Robert Osborne hosting three classic films, a litany of events and a new pre-festival ticketing system that will streamline getting in and out of the theaters.
The increasingly popular Festival, which has been attracting sell-out crowds of movie fans and a growing list of producers, directors, screenwriters and actors from both independent production companies and big-name movie companies with burgeoning independent divisions, runs from Sunday, Feb. 22 to Sunday, March 1.
