Moulin Rouge kicks off the Sunset Screenings film series.

Since most of your favorite shows have already aired season finales, you'll probably be spending your weeknights going through your Netflix queue, but why sit at home when you can enjoy free screenings of films in the Arts District? AT&T Performing Arts Center and Dallas Film Society are kicking off their free summer and fall film series, Sunset Screenings at Strauss Square, with a showing of Moulin Rouge at 8:45 p.m. June 18, and The Mixmaster is getting in on the fun by sponsoring the series.

Ready for the fine print? Of course you are. Guests can bring blankets, but no lawn chairs or baby strollers are permitted at Strauss Square. There will be a place for you to park your jogging stroller as Jim Schutze has generously volunteered to store them in his office. Hey, it's only a mile away. All jokes aside, there will be an area to park your stroller, and there'll also be concession stands to purchase refreshments since you can't bring a cooler or outside food and drinks.

The best part is that 500 lawn chairs will be provided for guests who make reservations on before the screenings, so you might have a front row seat to some of your favorite films. Here's the complete schedule:

June 18 at 8:45 p.m. - Moulin Rouge (2001)

July 16 at 8:30 p.m. - Amadeus (1984)

August 20 at 8:30 p.m. - Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010)

September 17 at 7:30 p.m. - Waiting for Guffman (1996)

October 15 at 7:00 p.m. - Almost Famous (2000)

November 19 at 7:00 p.m. - Walk the Line (2005)
