Friday night at the Lake? Sounds like a plan.

The iconic movie theater on Lake Street will reopen April 15 after a year of COVID dictated closure. Chris Johnson, CEO of the family-owned chain, says The Lake is back for good. No ebbs and flows of the pandemic will shutter its seven screens again, he says.

So whether you are ready to gather inside again (in a theater abiding by all safety and capacity precautions) or not ready quite yet, it lifts the heart to see this essential piece of Oak Park life coming back to life.
