The drive in movie may be a dwindling beast, but in greater Downtown Milwaukee and really all around metro Milwaukee the growth of the outdoor movie is on the upswing.
Today we have line ups for the second year of Peck Flicks at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts plus a full slate for other venues in and around Milwaukee.
