Here at Golden Age Cinemas McHenry Outdoor Theater, we pride ourselves on our concession stand. Our concession stand is what funds everything from the screen tower, to the nostalgic drive-in speakers, to the projector.
We offer many great food items from snacks to full meals:
In order to provide the best movie watching experience possible, we provide multiple ways to listen to the movie. We offer radio checkouts with a valid photo ID for $5.
We have a limited amount, so while supplies last! If you don’t want to rent a radio or use your car, bring a portable stereo or radio to use and tune into 89.9FM!
At Golden Age Cinemas, McHenry Outdoor Theater, we do our best to ensure that everyone’s night is as fun and enjoyable as possible. In order to ensure that all cars have an adequate view of the screen we do have a few parking rules.
RED POLES: Vehicles larger than 67″ will be required to park next to a red colored pole. Red poles are located near the outside, front, and back.
SILVER POLES: Vehicles shorter than 67″ will be required to park next to a silver colored pole. Silver poles are located in the center of the lot.
HATCHES: Any vehicle hatch that is blocking the view of those behind them may be asked to be lowered or shut.!
The nostalgic McHenry Outdoor Theater continues to make memories for thousands of families in the McHenry County Area.
With numerous years of experience, we at Golden Age Cinemas strive to recreate the entertaining, innocent days of the 1950’s. Put the kids in their pajamas, get in the car, and come out to see two movies for less than the price of one. Nothing is more American than spending a summer night under the stars watching a big Hollywood movie.
We strive to always offer one new release movie that will run for a minimum of two weeks. The second feature will usually be changed every weekend. Because we only have one screen, we usually will not know what movies will play until the preceding Monday.
