Urbanites, pay attention. Summer in the City will return to the Boston Harbor Hotel this season, with free entertainment every night Tuesdays through Fridays. The longstanding annual series brings live music and movie nights to Rowes Wharf, giving the ICA across the way a run for its money.

The 18th annual Summer in the City series is organized into four different theme nights each week: Pop-Soul Tuesdays, Rat Pack Wednesdays, Blues Barge Thursdays, and Classic Movie Fridays / Movies by Moonlight. How classic, you ask? On June 10 and 17, the BHH will kick things off with Dirty Dancing and Jaws. They’ll show The Sandlot August 19 and close out the series with Mamma Mia! on August 9.

Once again: there is no reason to be a couch potato this summer. Get up, get out. Fun things are happening.

Here’s the full Summer in the City lineup:
