    The Ultimate Guide to 2016 Movies in the Parks
    There's much to love about the Chicago Park District's Movies in the Park program: They're (mostly) kid friendly, free for your viewing pleasure, and spread throughout the city all summer.

    There are some really great movies that were shown this summer, of the ones I know -- American classics such as The Wizard of Oz. I'm glad Wall-E was shown, and Inside Out seemed very good to me. It's interesting (briefly) to adopt a moralistic perspective on these films, and how things have changed (or not) since Hollywood's golden age (under the old Hayes Codes). Cool Hand Luke is a martyr-the-individualist film, with one notable salacious scene and some vivid physical torture. The Sting of course glorifies con men (even if it's in the course of taking down another criminal). Some Like It Hot, one of my personal all time favorites, is about as perverse as a popular entertainment could be when it was released in 1959, and though played for laughs the sexual hijinks, impostures and reversals remain the heart of the film. The public voted for The Dark Knight -- so be it. But maybe in this case curation would help introduce something onscreen less familiar but more heartening for our citizenry.

  • @Jazzmandel: If you are into classic movies, be sure to catch the Coen Bros :Hail, Caesar". Hilarious parody of the studios set in 1950. Probably not appearing in movies in the parks for quite a few years, though.

    Dear Neighbor, FIGMENT is an inclusive, participatory arts event that removes the barriers of museums and gallery walls. In their inaugural 2013 year, FIGMENT's Chicago team declared, "FIGMENT is an antidote to uncertain times. Organizers focused on concepts like decommodification and outside-the-box thinking, believing strongly in FIGMENT's capacity to counteract troubling news and provide a break from hardships many Chicagoans face."
