A drive-in movie theater is coming to Soldier Field this week.

Starting Wednesdays, movies will air on a big screen outside the Bears’ home field in the South Lot Festival Area, Block Club Chicago first reported Monday.

The flicks will be shown Wednesdays through Sundays. The lot opens at 7 p.m. with musical performances by DJs and local artists happening until the showing begins at 8:30 p.m.

The initial lineup features a list of classic movies, including “Groundhog Day,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day off,” “Fast & Furious,” “Grease” and “Shrek,” respectively.

Tickets won’t be available for purchase on site, but can be bought for $55 per vehicle (up to six people) on ticketweb.com. That price includes a bucket of popcorn.

For social distancing purposes, eight feet of separation will be established between cars and pedestrian areas, Block Club reported. Concessions will be cash-less and there will also be “sanitation stations” around the lot.

With social distancing at the front of most people’s minds due to the coronavirus pandemic, drive-in movie theaters have made a comeback, with many new venues popping up in and around Chicago in recent weeks.

The ChiTown Movies drive-in in Pilsen and Chicago Drive-In Theaters in Bridgeview opened for business last month.
