A sure sign of spring in the Kankakee Valley is the opening of the Melody Drive In Theater at Bass Lake for the season. Fred Heise says they’re all set to open Friday, April 4 with a blockbuster and have several other popular flicks scheduled throughout the spring and summer. For Friday, Screen 1 will feature Captain America 2 and Need for Speed. Mr. Peabody and Sherman and Non-Stop will be showing on Screen 2. Other movies lined up for the summer include Rio 2, which is scheduled the week of April 11. Fred Heise is excited about the lineup for later in the season.
“The new Spider Man’s coming out this summer. Another X-Men is coming out this summer. A couple of great sci-fi films…The Edge of Tomorrow, it’s got Tom Cruise, looks like a pretty good film that’s going to open up this summer. There is going to be another Transformers this summer. A couple of really great animated flicks. There’s another Train Your Dragon this summer. Disney has a couple films. One’s about a dinosaur, it’s like their Pixar-type film,” Heise said.
