Drive-in Movie October 1st

UPDATE 9/28/2005

If you can't make the cruise, but would still like to do the movie, we will be eating dinner at Augustino's (awesome, family-owned deli right by where we are meeting on 64, just west of 59) at around 5:30 to 6:30 or so. Then we'll head over to the theater.

Feel free to bring camping chairs etc to the theater, as many people like to actually sit outside their cars while they watch the movie. You are also allowed to bring in water/soda/snacks (no alcohol).

The group might be interested in stopping at a pumpkin patch along the cruise (it is a FALL Cruise after all).

The movies for this weekend are: “Into the Blue” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.”

What could be more fun than taking your MINI to a Drive-in Movie? How about a Drive-in Movie, a dinner, and a group drive in the Kane county area!!

Details are still in the works, but here is the plan so far..

When:Saturday October 1st. Meetup for the drive at 2:00.

Where:We will meet for a drive starting in the Menards parking lot near Route 59 and Route 64 in West Chicago. From there we will head out west for a nice drive. Dinner plans have not been set yet. The Cascade Drive-in is also located near Rt. 59 and Rt. 64.

Come on out for the whole event, or just part!!

  • Jeff Walter

    UPDATE:
    I finished the route last night, and I did my best to find a few roads that have some actual hills and wooded areas. But it's still northern Illinois, so you'll need to cut me a little slack.

    I wanted to give the group a few helpful details for Saturday. . . .

    1. If you can't make the cruise, but would still like to do the movie, we will be eating dinner at Augistino's (awesome, family-owned deli right by where we are meeting on 64, just west of 59) at around 5:30 to 6:30 or so. Then we'll head over to the theater.

    2. Feel free to bring camping chairs etc to the theater, as many people like to actually sit outside their cars while they watch the movie. You are also allowed to bring in water/soda/snacks (no alcohol).

    3. I thought the group might be interested in stopping at a pumpkin patch along the cruise (it is a FALL Cruise afterall).

    4. The movies for this weekend are: “Into the Blue” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.”

    5. In case anyone gets lost or is running late to the meeting spot, my cell is 847-477-8039.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday at 2:00!
