The series’ films will be presented on the latest and most sophisticated outdoor screen with sound projected from the Pavilion’s state-of-the-art sound system.    The screen was acquired by Millennium Park, Inc. to serve as a permanent enhancement to the Pritzker Pavilion. It measure 40 feet long and 22.5 feet high with an LED system and technology that is similar to that of a giant-screen television.  All film screenings are FREE and will begin at 6:30 p.m.
