The last days of summer are quickly approaching — how does your summer bucket list look? Did you check off most of those weekend getaways, trips to the farmer’s market, golden tans, and so on? Was an evening spent at an old-fashioned drive-in on your list? If it wasn’t, you might want to consider adding it. Or, if it was, and you still haven’t checked it off, we have a list to help you out!
Here are the best drive-ins in Illinois (be sure to make it to one before the summer’s over!):
Located in West Chicago, this old-time drive-in offers double features for just $10 per adult ($5 per child 5-11, free for kids under 5). Cascade Drive-In even has a ‘50s-era cafeteria, but feel free to bring in your own meals and snacks.
Here’s a bit of nostalgia for you: at McHenry Outdoor Theater, you need to call for showtimes! No more simply relying on Google! This drive-in has been a staple of the McHenry, Illinois, community for decades, and one trip there for a flick will tell you why. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for kids 11 and under.
There is no other way to describe the Harvest Moon Twin Drive In Movie Theatre, except as an absolute classic delight. Located in Gibson, Illinois, you won’t want to miss a trip to Harvest Moon, or their well-stocked snack bar that offers a variety of goodies from pizza to pickles.
