Films in the Square: “The Great Outdoors”

July 15, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:15 pm

Join us every Sunday evening at dusk for Films in the Square co-presented by Portland Summer Films. Bring a lawn chair, sit back and enjoy classic films in an outdoor venue.

This week:

July 15th — Howard Deutch’s “The Great Outdoors”

[8:30 pm start w/ 1h 40m running time]

It’s vacation time for outdoorsy Chicago man Chet Ripley (John Candy), along with his wife, Connie (Stephanie Faracy), and their two kids, Buck (Chris Young) and Ben (Ian Giatti). But a serene weekend of fishing at a Wisconsin lakeside cabin gets crashed by Connie’s obnoxious brother-in-law, Roman Craig (Dan Aykroyd), his wife, Kate (Annette Bening), and the couple’s two daughters. As the excursion wears on, the Ripleys find themselves at odds with the stuffy Craig family.


Portland Summer Films will play every Sunday evening at dusk in Congress Square Park from June 3rd through August 26th.
