The Quarry Theatres

Yesterday my youngest son, Matt and his girlfriend, Jamie, invited me to go see the newest Harry Potter movie. We have many movie theaters in our area but they insisted on going to the Quarry Cinemas at 9201 W. 63 St, Hodgkins, IL 60525. The phone number is 708-352-0767.

My husband asked them why they wanted to travel farther to The Quarry Cinemas as we have closer theaters. But I didn't have to ask since The Quarry theaters are newer and offer stadium seating. I didn't actually take a count of the actual number of theaters but on one source I saw the name listed as The Quarry Cinemas 14, so I'm assuming that's the number of available theaters. Harry Potter was running on a different theater almost every hour. There were also 12 other listings for the day so maybe there are more than 14 theaters. Next time we go I'll ask. This is also my favorite venue for movies.

Other local southwest suburban movie theaters are:

AMC Chicago Ridge 6 - 500 Chicago Ridge Mall, Chicago Ridge, IL 60514 – 708-423-4161

AMC Loews Crestwood 18 – 13221 Rivercrest Dr., Crestwood, IL 60445 – 708-396-2361

iPic Theaters - 619 E. Boughton Rd., Suite 200, Bolingbrook, IL  60440 – 630-378-8034

LaGrange Theater – 80 S. LaGrange Rd., La Grange, IL  60525 – 708-354-0460

Marcus Orland Park Cinemas – 16350 S. Lagrange Rd., Orland Park IL 60462 – 708-873-1900

For what it's worth, my favorite Harry Potter movie is still the prior one, The Prisoner of Azkaban, the 3rd in the series.
