If you've been dealing with cabin fever all summer long, here's something you can do with the entire family.

This weekend a classic sci-fi comedy double feature will be playing at a drive-in movie theater not too far from Rockford.

Located in Sterling, about an hour or so from Rockford, the Midway Drive-In is one of the drive-ins closest to Rockford.

There are a few other drive-in theaters, one in McHenry and the other in Monroe, Wisconsin. All three are a drive from Rockford so it all depends on what you want to see.

That's why this week it's worth it to probably head to the Midway.

They are playing one of my all-time favorite sci-fi comedies from the 1980s, Ghostbusters.

If that's not enough, the movie that catapulted Will Smith into superstardom, Men In Black, is the second flick.

Tickets need to be purchased in advance at the Midway Drive-In website, and you also need to pick up a food permit which allows you to bring in your own food and drink.

The Midway Drive-In is located at 91 Palmyra Road in Sterling.
