Drive In Season Begins

Welcome to June! The official launch of the Drive-in season coincides with the first big movie in June and this year it’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.  The second feature will be Angry Birds.  One Screen 2 we’ll be playing The Jungle Book with the second feature X-Men:Apocalypse.  Every summer we have some really tough decisions to make about which movies we play and which ones we pass on in order to make sure we can play the hits that will follow.  We are a family friendly theatre and rarely play R rated films. Tonight, Friday June 3rd, we welcome the Sisters on the Fly to our theatre.  Visit their website https://www.sistersonthefly.com/about-us/about-sotf/  and see for yourself what this wonderful organization is all about.  They’ll have their delightful vintage trailers on hand tonight and you can take a … Read More »
