Stateline Drive-Ins Matures This Weekend With R-Rated Tariff
There isn’t much variety among the 5 Stateline area drive-ins this week. There is usually a mix of films with 10 films screened in the 5 double feature films. Not so much with this week’s rate.
You have two dual options in the area this weekend, one is aimed at the youngest and the other is definitely not.
Let’s start with the dual R-rated features.
SkyVu Drive-In – Monroe WI ET
Midway Drive-In – Sterling IL ET
Highway 18 Drive-In – Jefferson IL
These three drive-in parks will be reserved for adults, or at least for adults who do not want their children to sleep. The first feature film will be the LOURDELY awaited Suicide Squad.
I really don’t know anything about the DC movie universe but it looks pretty good. It is written and directed by James Gunn. This is the same guy who wrote and directed one of the best Marvel movies, Guardians of the Galaxy. I’m very excited about an R-rated funny superhero movie. He also directed Super. You should see this if you haven’t already.
It’s probably good to bring the kids. A few curses and explosions shouldn’t scare them for life. The next movie could and it is Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It.
No thanks. You.
I mean, just look at the still they were using to sell the YouTube video. This lady looks terrified. I have never been a fan of horror movies. If you are, good for you, but I still don’t think you should bring your kid to this one. But it’s just me.
Stateline’s other two drive-ins are recycling some popular movies in recent weeks.
McHenry Drive-In – McHenry, IL AND
Route 34 Drive-In – Mendota, IL
Both of these theaters will remain loyal to last week’s box office winner Jungle Cruise.
From everything I’ve heard about Jungle Cruise, I’ve come to understand that while it’s not necessarily good, bad, or even memorable, it’s a whole lot of fun and just a positive movie experience. which is really all you need to drive -in.
Both theaters will follow with the latest Marvel Black Widow movie.
The Marvel machine cannot and will not be stopped. A new Marvel movie, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be on the schedule soon and will likely dominate screens when it does.
