CHICAGO (CBS) — The Summer Film Series at Millennium Park will kick off with a screening of “Ghostbusters” and a tribute to the late Harold Ramis.

The series runs from June 24-August 26, starting every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion.

Seats  inside the pavilion are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and visitors can also sit on the lawn.

The movies are presented on a 40-foot LED screen.

Two of the movies are rated R (“This Is Spinal Tap” and “The Birdcage”), while the remainder are PG-13, PG or G rated.
