Superman Outside his Phone Booth

A new pop culture icon has landed in Braidwood at the Polk-a-Dot Drive-In on Route 66. A life-sized, ready-for-action Superman figure stands outside of a real vintage phone booth in front of the Daily Planet newspaper building backdrop. Step into the phone booth and see if you, too, can emerge wearing tights, a cape, and a big "S" on your chest!
