PORTLAND, Ore. - Get those lawn chairs, coolers and picnic baskets ready - there's still time to catch an outdoor flick at Portland's parks.

Every week this summer, we've been putting the spotlight on one of the city's parks as part of an ongoing series. Now, as we wind out the last days of the season, we're changing it up a bit with some guides to help you enjoy what's left of summer before fall arrives.

Last week, as the temperatures started to sizzle, we pointed out some of the top spots to cool off. This week, we're reminding you that there's still time to enjoy a movie under the stars.

We've put together a list of the coming attractions in the next few weeks. All showings are free except for Gnomeo & Juliet. If you do plan on going, be sure to call (503) 823-5446 in advance to keep tabs on any schedule changes or cancellations.
