Millennium Park's summer film series is back. While there have been a couple movies shown already this year, tonight's screening of the glossy, bombastic musical Chicago—preceded by a Roger Ebert tribute—is the official kick-off event.

Minneapolis multi-instrumentalist and composer Douglas Ewart, who's touring with a group appropriately called "Sonic Feast," plays tonight at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
