Movie Night at Fort Sheridan!

Movie Night at Fort Sheridan!

Bring your lawn chairs and blankets for Fort Sheridan's first ever outdoor movie night! The Historic Commission came up with this great idea and will show a classic comedy, filmed in Chicago and Highland Park. For licensing reasons, we are not supposed to advertise the title, but it is a 1986 movie, rated pg-13 at the time. Hint: Shake it up baby now, twist and shout! Concessions will be available for purchase, proceeds to benefit the Fort Sheridan Historical Society.
