Spend an evening in the sunset and beneath the stars while watching a movie in pure nostalgia at the Sky View Drive-In. For over seventy consecutive years, the Litchfield Sky View has been in operation. Opening in the spring of 1950, Sky View still retains its original concession stand, offering classic film snacks like popcorn, salted pretzels, nachos, fried favorites, and grill items such as cheeseburgers and fries, chicken tenders, hot dogs, and Fema’s pizzas. Pair your snack with a fountain soda or pick from a variety of classic candies, ice cream, or the daily slush flavor! Hot pick-me-ups like coffee and hot-chocolate are also available.

Sky View Drive-In is on the Route 66 Hall of Fame and has a Wayside Exhibit featuring stories of the business’ long history in Litchfield and as a famous stop on the Mother Road. Sky View Litchfield is the last remaining drive-ins still operating on Route 66 in Illinois and one of only four left in the United States! The iconic theater uses powerful projectors that cast on the outdoor screen and operates rain or shine- tune into FM radio station 103.1 and listen to themed tracks and your upcoming film.

Don’t want to sit in your car? Bring a lawn chair and stake out in front of your vehicle- just be sure to bring a battery-powered radio! Guests can also watch the film from the concession stand patio which offers picnic tables. Bring the whole family for cheaper than indoor theater prices and make memories at the one-of-a-kind venue- plus Sky View is family-owned and operated!

Pop a piece of popcorn, kick back in your car seat, and turn up the volume for a magical evening spent old-school- just like they kicked it in the old days!
