Fan Pier will have plenty of fanfare this summer.

Developer Joe Fallon next month will launch monthly screenings of family-friendly films on the public green between One Marina Park Drive and the Institute of Contemporary Art.

In August, he’ll bring back the Red Bull cliff-diving tour, a spectacle in which performers plunge off the cantilevered ICA building into the harbor 80 feet below.

“The summer activities will only be getting better,” he said.

Fallon has been trying to increase the “fun” at Fan Pier and make the area a destination as his nine-block development continues.

Past attractions include the Cirque du Soleil in 2010 and the Volvo Ocean Race in 2009.

For the Fourth of July, when Boston commemorates the bicentennial of the War of 1812, Navy Seals will be skydiving down to the waterfront.

“We’re hoping to have them jump into Fan Pier park,” Fallon said.
