2022 Season: May 6th - October 30th

OVERVIEW

The McHenry Outdoor Theater is one of the most iconic attractions in all of McHenry County.  As of 2019 less than 400 drive in movie theaters are left in operation and only 7 in Illinois, however, our location continues strong thanks to the amazing support from our community and patrons.  Despite our success, however, maintaining this location has been a bit of a challenge as time and the elements continue to wreak havoc on this half-century old location.

Therefore, in an effort to both fund additional upgrades to keep our theater operating and support other local businesses, we now offer a wide variety of advertising options that can help expose your business to thousands of local customers this summer.

EXPOSURE

Our theater season runs from May through October each year and has been known to draw crowds upwards of 2,500 customers in a single evening.  We are located on the busy corner of Chapel Hill and Lincoln Rd in McHenry and continue to be a popular attraction for families nearby and all over the country.
