ABOUT LAKESHORE DRIVE-IN

Lakeshore Drive-In was created with the goal of reviving Chicago's live experience industry. We have come together to create a socially responsible event series that puts gigs in the hands of industry professionals and creates space for Chicagoans to get back to enjoying live entertainment safely. Lakeshore Drive-In features three LED screens for optimal viewing from every angle, concessions from local food vendors with delivery to your car, all in the foreground of Chicago’s skyline. 

 

ABOUT LOVECRAFT COUNTRY

Based on the novel of the same name by Matt Ruff, the ten-episode series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he journeys with his childhood friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) on a road trip from Chicago across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams). Their search-and-rescue turns into a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and monstrous creatures that could be ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft paperback. Created, and executive produced by Misha Green, with executive producers J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele, the sixth episode of HBO’s new drama series LOVECRAFT COUNTRY airs Sunday, September 20th on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
