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.
Gates for the drive-in will open at 6:30pm. At our theater we have an expanse of grass that is great for playing with the kids before the show gets started.
Upon leaving our theater grounds you must pay to reenter.
All parking at the McHenry Outdoor Theater is first come first serve. Any objects blocking or saving spaces may be asked to move. We recommend arriving together whenever possible.
We accept debit and credit cards at our box office and in our concession stand.
Because our screen is located outdoors, we must wait until it is completely dark before the movie may begin. Movie start times will vary throughout the summer depending of the time of sundown.
We will always play through our movies rain or shine! We cannot issue rain checks or refunds.
No sort of grilling is allowed at the McHenry Outdoor. That includes propane, charcoal, or electrical grills.
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.
