We aren’t sure how we (and seemingly everyone else) missed this, but arguably the best summer movie series in the city released its film lineup late last month. Between the third Friday of each June through late October, the Milwaukee Bike-In Movie Series sets up a projector at the swing park beneath the Holton Street Bridge and offers free 8 p.m. screenings of beloved classics, cult favorites, and even a few new-ish releases for good measure.
In recent years, the underground—or “underbridge,” to be more accurate—series has presented films like Robocop, Shaun Of The Dead, Hackers, Jurassic Park, The Great Outdoors, Tremors, and Inglorious Basterds to cyclists and cinephiles alike. This year’s film lineup (sponsored by Connect 53212) is pretty damn good, including the incomparably bloody dystopian BMX flick Turbo Kid starting things off on June 17. Take a look at the full schedule, and air up those tires.
June 17 — Turbo Kid (2015)
July 15 — Labyrinth (1986)
August 19 — Straight Outta Compton (2015)
September 16 — Back To The Future (1985)
October 21 — Donnie Darko (2001)
