Time Out says

Many of Chicago's drive-in theaters have closed for the season, but the Davis Theater-curated pop-up at Fleet Fields (1684 N Throop St) on the future site of Lincoln Yards is still going strong. In December, it's presenting a lineup of classic holiday films, including Scrooged, Home Alone, Elf and Die Hard.

Following current safety guidelines, cars will have 10 feet of space between them and bathroom facilities will be available (and sanitized between each use), though you'll need to bring your own face mask to wear when leaving your vehicle. You can also add concessions like popcorn (buttered or Chicago mix) and candy when ordering your ticket.

The check-in and start times for each screening vary—see the Davis Theater website for additional details and check out the holiday drive-in lineup below:

December 10 - Scrooged

December 11 - Home Alone

December 12 - Elf

December 17 - Gremlins

December 18 - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

December 19 - A Christmas Story

December 26 - Die Hard 


$35 per vehicle with up to six people
