Classic Films in Chicago

Every summer, the great city of Chicago hosts an Outdoor Film Festival in Grant Park showing classic films. I skipped it last year because they didn't really show classic films. They were more...movies from any time that people really like and could possibly be considered classics at some point in the future.

Luckily this year they came to their senses and they're showing some actual old movies. I'm especially looking forward to The Awful Truth, a fabulous old Cary Grant, Irene Dunn movie. To my knowledge, this is not the most well known Cary Grant movie, so I was a little surprised that they chose to show it, but I'm not complaining. It's completely hilarious and it's always been one of my favorite Cary Grant films. It's complete silliness and I really love Irene Dunn. She's a great time!

They're also showing The Sound of Music, which I fully intend to see if I can find someone to see it with. How many times can one person see The Sound of Music, you ask? The answer: infinity.

During the summer, Universal Citywalk (by Universal Studios) also hosts outdoor movies, as does the Hollywood Bowl. Last year, I think they had a "Sing Along, Sound of Music" event for people. That reminds me... I should check into what they're showing this year??
