The Silver Screens outdoor film festival begins tomorrow evening with a showing of “Back to the Future Part II” on Veterans Plaza in downtown Silver Spring.

This is the second year for the series, which is sponsored by the American Film Institute Silver Theatre and Cultural Center.

Tomorrow’s film was released in 1989 and stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Elisabeth Shue.

“Thanks to the generosity of our own American Film Institute, Silver Screens is a great way for families to get together and enjoy some fun movies,” Councilmember Tom Hucker, who helped launch the series last year, said in a press release.

The rest of the summer’s lineup:

Aug. 18: “Lego the Batman Movie” (2017), an animated feature with the voices of Will Arnett, Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis and Conan O’Brien.

Aug. 25: “Purple Rain” (1984). This film stars Prince and an Oscar-winning score.

Sept. 1: “School of Rock” (2003), starring Jack Black.

The free screenings start at about 8 p.m., rain or shine. Attendees may bring blankets or seats.
