Although summer isn't quite winding down in sense that it's getting any cooler outside, the first day of school is right around the corner. Our suggestion for winding down after a long day of back-to-school shopping? Take advantage of these waning weeks of summer (or celebrate the fact that the kids will finally be back in class) with an outdoor movie night this weekend. 

From the city center to the suburbs, there's a family-friendly flick screening near you. All are free and all are al fresco.
