In addition to showings of “Lightyear” and “Thor: Love and Thunder”, moviegoing early birds also can enjoy an evening of trivia, raffles and prizes July 29, and a night of mysticism and mind-reading July 30 at the McHenry Outdoor Theater.

A bounce house will be on site both nights, with gates opening at 6:30 p.m. at 1510 N. Chapel Hill Road in Lakemoor.

The July 29 festivities will be presented by McHenry Area Rotary. A portion of all concession sales will go to the Rotary to be put toward its charitable endeavors. There will be trivia contests with Blues, Brews & BBQ ticket packages and Outdoor Theater passes as prizes. One or more 50-50 raffles will also take place.

On July 30, Joe Diamond will present an all-ages show before the movie showings begin. The popular entertainer will demonstrate his “psychic and mystic prowess,” according to a press release from the theater.

Both sets of pre-movie activities will take place near the concession stand. Admission to the McHenry Outdoor Theater is $12 per adult; $6 for children ages 3 to 11, seniors and military personnel; and free for kids younger than 3. A $12 per-carload special is available on Tuesday nights, and season passes are also available.
