The Minneapolis movies in the park lineup is actually legit

Seriously, they're showing movies like "La La Land" and "Rogue One." That's not bad.

Minneapolis released the list of movies that'll be showing for free in its parks all summer long. And we've got to admit, the lineup looks pretty solid.

There's a little bit of something for everyone – from recent hits like La La Land and Rogue One, to classics like The Princess Bride and Clueless.

Starting June 5 with Sully, movies will be playing every night, except Sundays and Independence Day. All movies start 15 minutes after sunset, you can find exact times here. But it's best to get there early if you want to get a good spot.

City organizers told GoMN you're welcome to pack up a picnic and bring along your pets... but leave the alcohol at home, please. Adult beverages are not allowed.

Movies in the Parks has been going on since 2007.

So what's all playing?

If you're into space movies, there's Rogue One, Star Trek Beyond, and Arrival.

You can catch up on Robin Williams hits like Mrs. Doubtfire and Jumanji – or rewatch some quirky classics like Pee Wee's Big Adventure and The NeverEnding Story.

And then there are still kid-friendly flicks like Secret Life of Pets, Inside Out, Finding Dory, Sing, Trolls and Moana. For the full calendar of movies, click here.

Similarly, the city will be hosting a bunch of free concerts in parks, too. You can learn more about those here.
