“The Goonies” And A Drive-In Theatre Are Back In Chicago!

You can thank the Six Corners Association for reviving the art. On Friday, September 30th, the parking lot at 3930 N. Milwaukee Ave. will become a drive-in (or walk-in, if you wish) theatre…for one night only.

    "The Goonies" And A Drive-In Theatre Are Back In Chicago!
    Drive-in theatres are an that's all but lost in the 21st century. Oh sure, there are still a small handful in operation...like the Cascade in West Chicago or the McHenry Outdoor Theater, though most have vanished...like the Hi-Lite 30 in Aurora. As for actual Chicago city locations like the Double or the Bel-Air, they're long gone...until now, that is!
