Drive-In Movies?

Hi! Hope everybody is having a great 4th of July weekend so far!

I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I've always wanted to go to a drive-in movie theatre, but never been. I know there are ones reasonably near Chicago. Which one(s) do you recommend?

the only one I've found is in West Chicago/Carol Stream area. Probably an hour-ish away.
Cascade Drive-in
Thanks! I found that one while searching. An hour away isn't too far.
The only other one I know of besides Cascade is the Keno Drive-In in Pleasant Prairie, WI, right across the border, also about an hour away. Looking at their websites, they look to be operated by the same people. Keno is cheaper by $1 per person if it helps.
That does help, thank you! I'm glad to know I've got choices.
There's a drive in in McHenry, the McHenry Outdoor Theater. I grew up near there and we'd sneak in in other kids' car trunks. Probably a bad idea in retrospect, but it was fun at the time. Probably about an hour and fifteen minute drive out of the city.
Yay, thank you! Now I've got a 3rd option. : )
I think Cascade is the best one! I love going there!!!
I like hearing that! I might go there this Friday with my family. : )
