Lunch & a Movie

What better way to end a busy week than with lunch and a movie with friends.  Each month we will travel to a different community to have lunch and enjoy a movie.  A choice of three different movies will be offered to trip participants.

Trip includes transportation by Park District bus, and movie ticket (*Please note additional costs for 3D movies will be the responsibility of the participant.)

Lunch will be on your own at the restaurant.  Minimal walking.

Please register by the Monday prior to the trip.

Max & Benny's


Max & Benny’s was founded 32 years ago, when the Schlan family saw a glaring need for an authentic, homemade scratch deli. Highlights include the world famous Reuben and the homemade Matzo Ball soup. Along with a successful deli style restaurant, they also built up their bakery, offering the city’s best rugelach and mandel bread, and creating hand decorated cookies that wow the eyes as much as the taste buds. After lunch, enjoy an afternoon movie at AMC Northbrook Court 14.
