3. Deer Park Century Theatres

For younger teens who can’t drive, this movie theater is conveniently located in Deer Park Town Center right by Noodles & Company and Coldstone Creamery. It’s great for kids because students get movie tickets for only $7.75, which is cheaper than most surrounding theaters.

The frozen yogurt craze that’s taking over the US is hitting Barrington too! Blue Cherry is the only frozen yogurt place located in downtown Barrington. Its self-serve frozen yogurt and toppings bar make it a popular place for teens to eat and hang out.
