Pritzker pavilion at Millenium Park will have a screen that will function like a big TV and connect the pavilion with free culture, sports and entertainment from around the world.
There is a new attraction in Chicago's famous Millennium Park. It is called "The Screen."
The 40-foot wide, 22.5-foot tall piece in the downtown park is made up of LED lights.
Millennium Park chairwoman Donna LaPietra says the screen will function like a big TV and connect the pavilion with free culture, sports and entertainment from around the world.
The curtain will officially rise on The Screen Tuesday night, with a free public showing of the movie musical "Chicago."
The Screen was installed at a cost of $550,000 and is located above the Jay Pritzker Pavilion stage. Officials say no tax dollars were used.
LaPietra says the screen will pay for itself. She says there are plans to host 55 events per year.
