The Belvidere Park District may have taken a gamble on showing a drive-in movie in November, but it looks like it may pay off.

Weather-wise, it feels more like September than early November, with lows tonight hitting 60. For me, those temps are perfect for a drive-in flick.

So tonight the Belvidere Park District plans on showing its final drive-in of the season, Disney's The Mighty Ducks.

Released in 1992, The Mighty Ducks is a hockey cult classic. Think Slap Shot, but for kids.

A self-centered Minnesota lawyer is sentenced to community service coaching a ragtag youth hockey team.

Some of the standouts from the cast are Emilio Estevez, as the "self-centered lawyer" and a very young Joshua Jackson long before he was Pacey Witter on Dawson's Creek.

Gates open at 6:45 with the movie scheduled to show at 7:30 p.m.

Since it is a movie about hockey, the Belvidere Park District will hand out coupons to the first 75 cars for a free skate rental or kid's admission to Riverside Ice Arena.

Don't forget, this is the final drive-in of the season at Sundstrand Park, 2288 Newburg Road.

Drive-in flicks return to Sundstrand in the Spring of 2021.
