    The current weather makes it easy to believe that summer is finally here -- as of Saturday, June 20, that is.

    And while in most parts of the country, the only way to watch new movies is at home on TV or on our streaming devices (drive-ins are mostly going the "classics" route), we can still celebrate cinema with our weekly movie quiz.

    See how much you know about not just summer movies, but movies with the word "summer" in their titles.
