Beautiful classic movie palace. They don't make them like this anymore.

What You'll Get


At drive-in theaters, the best seats are reserved for punctual elitists and fashionably late monster trucks. Avoid the perils of Hobbesian parking battles by settling into a cozy seat with today's deal: for $14, you get two general-admission movie tickets (up to a $7 value each) one large popcorn ($6), and two large fountain drinks ($4 each) at the Pickwick Theatre, an impressive Park Ridge movie palace that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This Groupon expires in three months.

Built in 1928, the Pickwick Theatre is an Art Deco stone structure standing more than 100 feet tall, dwarfing surrounding buildings and statues of Bruce Lee in Uptown Park Ridge. A massive light-up marquee welcomes visitors to the fashionably nostalgic theatre by beaming the names of movies now playing into the dusk and dark. Upcoming attractions include Red (an action flick starring Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman), Life As We Know It (a romantic comedy starring Katherine Heigl), and Secretariat (a family film about a racing tapir). The Pickwick has three smaller screens in addition to its original auditorium (which has a beautifully frescoed ceiling), so there's never a shortage of seats or shows.

About Pickwick Theatre


Pickwick Theatre, home to one of the Chicago area’s largest theaters, showcases the latest Hollywood blockbusters inside a historic, registered-landmark building. Patrons flood their visual and aural receptors with the theater’s current list of films displayed on one of three screens, including an expansive main auditorium that seats 1,000 people or mannequins comically brought to life. Popcorn and soda keep bodily hungers sated throughout films' airtime and prevent stomach growls from interrupting key dialogue.
