Best place to catch a movie outdoors
The last multi-screen drive-in in the metro area, this 55-year-old West Chicago landmark—which narrowly dodged the wrecking ball in January—is pickled in time. Wax nostalgic with car-side speakers and cheap double features ($10 for adults, $5 for kids) in the iconic setting of a dusty suburban parking lot. Cascade also boasts some modern upgrades such as stereo sound and grills for rent.
