Movie Nights are returning for a second run at Palatine American Legion Post 690 in the village's downtown.

Palatine village council members this week granted the post approval to host the four outdoor Movie Nights on Fridays. Rosette Marturana, the post's manager and event planner, wrote to the village council that the movies will be "free for everyone."

However, the post will have an opportunity to make money. Patrons 21 and older may pay $10 for three drink tickets good for beer or wine at Movie Nights in the American Legion parking lot, 122 W. Palatine Road.

All flicks will start by dusk and end by 11 p.m.

Up first will be "Up" on June 22. That'll be followed by the original "Jumanji" on July 27, "E.T." on Aug. 17 and "How to Train Your Dragon" on Sept. 14.

Free popcorn will be offered at the movies, with hot dogs, bratwurst, candy, soda, water and ice cream available for purchase, according to Post 690.

Movies will be inside in the event of bad weather.
