Chicago Outdoor Film Festival
This is a popular film fest that shows classic films in Grant Park each Tuesday throughout the summer. City dwellers congregate under the stars with picnic baskets and blankets to enjoy sunset showings of films on a 50-foot by 34-foot screen. Admission is free, and food and non-alcoholic beverages can be purchased in the park. Past films have included, 'A Streetcar Named Desire', 'The Maltese Falcon', 'West Side Story' and 'Dr. Strangelove'.
This was such an amazing event. My fiance and I went to Chicago last year and are not really into the nightclub or bar scene, so it was nice to find something to do in the evening. Best of all, it is free(except for the concessions, which you do not have to buy, just bring your own). Just remember to bring a blanket to sit on.
