This popular outdoor movie theater in Illinois is hosting a fun family event before an upcoming special double feature.

One Of The Best Summer Activities

I absolutely love summertime because there are so many fun outdoor activities. One of the best is going to the drive-in movie theater. I have so many great memories. I remember going with my parents as a kid. My friends and I would go when were in high school and college. I'm so excited they have made a comeback over the last couple of years. Now, I take my own family.

Drive-In Movie Theater Is All About The Experience

Of course, some people will say that IMAX is the ultimate experience. I'm going to have to disagree. For me, it's the drive-in. They are usually in the middle of nowhere. You get there early to pick out a good spot. Sit in your car or bring some lawn chairs. There's the picnic dinner from the old-school snack bar. Then check out the movie under the stars. It makes for an amazing night.
