Two drive-in cinemas are opening this week in the Chicago territory.
ChiTown Movies drive-in opens Tuesday night in the Pilsen neighborhood. The Chi-Town Futbol office, 2343 S. Throop Street, will show films in its parking area this mid-year on a 40-foot projection screen.
The cost is $33 per vehicle for up to five grown-ups and $5 extra charge for every additional grown-up.
Like permanent drive-ins, the audio will be piped through cars’ FM radios.
Concessions will be given by phone or online at the facility’s restaurant ChiTown Grille and food can be conveyed to vehicles. The first highlighted film will be, “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.”
On Thursday, Chicago Drive-In Theaters is opening an area at SeatGeek Stadium, 7000 S. Harlem Avenue, in Bridgeview.
Movies will screen at 8:30 p.m., with midnight movies on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets are $30-$50 per vehicle. The premiere night film will be “The Goonies.”
Masks are required at both drive-in areas on the off chance that you leave your vehicle to use the restroom or to buy food.
