As we all know, summer is the time for blockbuster movies. 2016 is no different, as Hollywood hopes that fans will pack air-conditioned theaters to enjoy action heavy flicks like "Star Trek Beyond," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2," "X-Men: Apocalypse" and "Independence Day: Resurgence."
But if you have grown weary of the countless sequels, remakes and adaptations, never fear, for Philadelphia has you covered. Both outside and inside, the city's cinematic offerings include everything from Hollywood classics to cult favorites all summer long. Here are 5 must-see movies that have nothing to do with CGI explosions or wisecracking superheroes.
"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"
The Mann Music Center
Not only was the Harry Potter film series a faithful adaptation of J.K. Rowling's beloved books, but each of the films also had some of the most memorable scores in film history. Thanks to the equally amazing Philadelphia Orchestra, you can enjoy "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" with live orchestral accompaniment this summer.
