Chicago Outdoor Film Festival 2008 Line-Up

by Matt B on April 10th, 2008

filmSpring is finally here! It's time to announce the line-up for the Chicago Outdoor Film Festival held in Butler Field of Grant Park. Every Tuesday night this summer, you can bring your blanket or lawn chair, a picnic basket, and some friends to enjoy a movie' for free! Just remember that this is a popular event, so you'll want to arrive about an hour early if you want to stake out a prime viewing location. Oh, and of course, no alcohol is allowed.

This year, the festival will feature seven classic American films spanning 30 years.
