What a lovely night at the Drive-In

Saturday, July 7th, 2018

It was a nice cool evening, a switch from the sweltering humidity we’ve been having. A great night to watch Antman & the Wasp and Incredibles 2.

Travel back in time as we enter the 1950’s when drive-ins dotted the U.S. at the Cascade in West Chicago to see Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp on Saturday, July 7th.

The movie doesn’t start til sunset but if you want a good spot, get there early (gates open at 6:30). You can bring all the snacks and non-alcoholic beverages you want to make this movie experience fun and enjoyable.

If the weather is bad, our go to backup plan is the Classic Cinemas at Charlestowne.

Rogue One Discussion

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

It was a Hoth-like Sunday. But a few of us made it past the first marker and saw and talked about Rogue One.

As is now a tradition, we came up with our favorite lines from the movie:

Anything K-2SO said.

I am one with the Force. The Force is with me.”

Are you kidding me? I’m BLIND”

Rebellions are built on hope.”

“Are we blind?”

Rogue One, Discussion

Discussion Team Go!
