Cicero Twin Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Cicero Outdoor Theatre opened in 1969, as a single screen drive-in. It was located on Cicero Avenue in Monee. Around 1982, a second screen was added, and the theater became the Cicero Twin.

At the end of the 2002 season, the drive-in was closed for good, and was entirely demolished in the fall of 2003.

We only went here a few times as it was usually chaos by the early nineties. Seven of us piled into a pick-up to see Eddie or Set It Off? Who knows. It was fun and a shame teenagers today can’t have drive-ins w/o the fear of getting shot.

A friend and I saw “The Godfather” at the Cicero Twin Drive-In. It was a very oddball, strange setting in which to see the classic Francis Ford Coppola film. I don’t remember a lot about the place but I do remember thinking that, due to the sheer amount of acreage used that it was kind of an antiquated though charming concept.

It broke my heart when I went by the area this theater was at in 2006 and found an empty field. I saw so many of my favorite films there. Also, there were 2 screens in 1980 so they had to have added the second one earlier than ‘82.
