The InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile has announced its Dive-In Movie series featuring classic, kid-friendly summer films set inside their indoor pool. Each Saturday night, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, beginning at sunset, guests can grab a bag of freshly popped popcorn and complimentary inflatable floaty before enjoying a full-length feature film projected on the hotel’s 80-foot jumbo screen. Dry seating will also be provided for moviegoers who prefer a spot on solid ground.
In addition to the movie, guests can order bites and beverages off the hotel’s new poolside menu from Executive Chef Craig Cooper. The poolside menu will be offered all summer long and features cooler fare to pair with warm, summer temps. Craft cocktails, beer, and wine will also be available off the “adult-swim” section of the poolside menu.
“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Dive-In Movies to our hotel’s summer programming,” said Pete Demay, General Manager ofInterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile. “As a parent myself, I know that traveling to a new city with the whole family can be exciting and exhausting all at the same time. Having a great on-site evening program like this allows parents to have a nice, easy way to end a day of Chicago exploration. Our Junior Olympic swimming pool is the ideal setting for a luxurious night in that feels like a summer night out. It’s an experience that guests can’t get anywhere else.”
