If you're not using the stadium, you might as well use the parking lot.

That had to be the thinking the folks at the Sears Centre had when approached by Chicago Drive-In.

You see, they already launched something similar at SeatGeek Stadium earlier this month.

Now they are getting ready to set up shop in the empty Sears Centre parking lot in Hoffman Estates to show outdoor movies.

Sure, the movies are old, but hey, it's something to do, right?

However, the movies tend to run the gamut so they aren't just kid flicks.

The movies start this Thursday kicking it all off with The Goonies.

From there, things get a little eclectic.
