Soldier Field Hosting Drive-In Movies

Soldier Field Hosting Drive-In Movies

As the popularity of drive-in movie theaters skyrockets and professional sporting events remain in limbo, what better use for the iconic stadium Soldier Field in this trying time than to bring Chicagoans together for a socially distanced movie night? The lakefront arena and home of the Chicago Bears will serve as the site of a giant drive-in movie theater beginning this week.

Family films will be shown from Wednesday through Sunday night, on a big screen, in the south lot festival area. Doors open at 7 p.m., with movies starting at 8:30 p.m.

FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF hits the screen this evening, Thursday, followed by FAST AND FURIOUS on Friday, GREASE on Saturday and SHREK on Sunday.

Tickets will be sold on a per-car or non-car format and there will be a designated area for people who walk, bike or get dropped off. Each ticket includes a 90 minute music showcase by a locally featured Musician or DJ, followed by the movie screening on the big screen... and a bucket of popcorn for the group, for good measure.

Tickets are available online with proceeds benefitting the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Click here to purchase tickets for yourself and your family.
