Summer Guide: Movies 

Go to the Movies

There are two schools of thought when it comes to movies in the summertime – there are those who believe that movie theaters exist to give us a dark, comfy, air-conditioned spot to while away a steamy-hot day, and those who love nothing more than spreading a blanket out in the park, busting open a bottle of wine and enjoying the camaraderie of an outdoor film under the stars, mosquitoes and humidity be damned. Below we've compiled a list that should satisfy both types of movie-goer. For the indoor-is-where-it's-at viewer, we list local theaters, along with a short list of summer blockbusters you won't want to miss. For the intrepid outdoorsfolk, you'll find a listing of summer film events where you can lay on your back in the grass while watching an oldie-but-goodie. Word to the wise: Don't forget the bug spray.
