The Marcus Elgin Cinema in Elgin, Illinois is opening an outdoor movie theater in its parking lot tonight. Much like what the company has done in Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin in what it is calling "Parking Lot Cinema," a temporary movie screen has been mounted to the side of the building and moviegoers will parking in specially marked spots that ensures proper distancing.

According to information on the theater's web site, the screen measures 42-feet wide. While that sounds large, standard drive-in movie screens more twice that, so you'll want to get there early to get a close parking spot for the largest possible picture.

Double-features will be shown. Tonight's first show is E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, followed by Jurassic Park. Tomorrow night will be a single showing of Garth Brooks Drive-In Concert. Bring a portable radio, as the sound will be transmitted via an FM radio station. Restrooms in the theater will be open for guests to use.

The gates will open at 7pm and the first showtime will be at 9:15pm. They are requesting that you arrive at least 45 minutes before the first showing.

Tickets are sold by the carload, and concessions will be available as well. To buy tickets and food, please visit the official web site for the Marcus Elgin Cinema.
