July 20-22: Dive-in, rock out, and rise up
Dive-In Movie: Temperatures are expected to climb into the 90s again on Saturday, so if you're looking to cool down after a long day in the sun, head over to the McCambridge Park swimming pool for a "dive-in" movie. Relax in and around the pool while watching Disney's "Lilo & Stitch" on a giant poolside screen. Rated PG.

The Dark Knight Rises: Despite the horrific shooting in Aurora, Colorado, "The Dark Knight Rises" is opening to rave reviews and big box office numbers.

The film concludes Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy starring Christian Bale as Batman, and also stars Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, and Morgan Freeman. Rated PG-13.
