EVANSTON, IL — An drive-in screening of the 1985 film “The Goonies” is scheduled for Thursday on a new screen in the parking lot of an Evanston car dealership. Proceeds from tickets to the event will benefit local nonprofits who have missed out on fundraising opportunities during the coronavirus pandemic, according to organizers.
Autobarn Evanston and The Davis Theater are hosting the event at the car dealership’s lot on the north side of the Evanston Center in the 3100 block of Howard Street. Attendees can purchase prepackaged dinner boxes from four local restaurants along with their tickets to the outdoor screening.
Tickets are $28.16 per vehicle of up to six people and non-refundable. Up to 60 cars will be allowed in the lot, and attendees must remain inside their allocated spaces but may sit in chairs in front of their vehicles.
