The Return Of The Drive-In Movie Theater In Illinois

One of the good things to come out of 2020 was the return of the drive-in movie theater. I have such great memories of going as a kid, I was so happy to see them back. Luckily, living in Illinois we have a handful still around. Nowadays, they do a great job of hosting special events.
