Free films will make a return to downtown Lawrence this summer.

City commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting unanimously approved a permit for downtown Lawrence’s annual film festival.

Downtown Lawrence Inc. again plans to use a vacant lot at the southwest corner of Ninth and New Hampshire streets to show classic films on the wall of the parking garage.

This year, Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn will take center stage.

Here’s a look at the proposed schedule: June 11, “Woman of the Year”; June 25, “Without Love”; July 9, “State of the Union”; July 23, “Adam’s Rib”; Aug. 13, “Pat & Mike”; Aug. 27, “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.”

Each evening will begin with live music, free popcorn and prize drawings at 8 p.m. The movies will start at 9:15 p.m.
