Top 5 Outdoor Movie Spots for June
June Outdoor Movies in Chi Town
So no, we don’t have any drive-in theaters within Chicago city limits, but that doesn’t stop us Chicagoans from getting outside to catch a flick. There are actually a whole lot of spots all over the city to choose from so we’ve compiled a list of the top spots to watch an outdoor movie in Chicago for the rest of June.
