The Academy's summer screening series, "Oscars Outdoors," at the open-air theater of the Academy Hollywood campus, will kick off Friday, June 15, and run through August 18. These Friday night screenings will focus on classic and contemporary adult favorites (including "Casablanca," "North by Northwest" and "Raising Arizona"), while Saturday's will be family-friendly selections (including "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "The Princess Bride" and "The Karate Kid"). On August 17, the screening will be "audience choice," as determined by online voting. Most screenings will also include surprise screenings of animated and live-action short films. The schedule is listed below, along with ticket and venue details.

On May 19, the venue will be initiated with an invite-only screening of "Field of Dreams." TOH! will be there.

The series will compete with Cinespia's beloved Hollywood Forever Cemetery summer screenings, which tend to feature slightly edgier and genre fare. Recent years have included classics like "Blow Up," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "Midnight Cowboy" and "Vertigo."
