The movies this weekend include:

  • Screen 1: Trolls World Tour and Sonic The Hedgehog
  • Screen 2: Onward and Call of the Wild
  • Screen 3: The Invisible Man and The Wretched

Of course, US 23 Drive-In Theater does have some new rules to follow to allow for safety and social distancing. The new rules are as follows:

  • The theater will be operating at half capacity, which means only one car will be allowed to park between the poles.
  • A $5 surcharge be added to each vehicle. This charge will be used for supplies and costs until some social distancing rules have been lifted.
  • Each ticket purchase will come with a free surgical mask.
  • The concession stand will be open for carry-out only. Place your orders at one of the two walk-up windows with glass shields and keep six-foot separation in line.
  • Restrooms will be open using only every other stall and masks will be required to enter the restroom. Restroom attendants will be on hand sanitize throughout the night and help keep the correct number of people in the restroom at a given time.
  • No viewing from lawn chairs will be allowed, you must watch the movie from your car. However, watching from the bed of your truck is allowed.
  • No portable radios are available for rent at this time.

It is great to see things starting to reopen to give people a way to get out of the house and find some enjoyment. Enjoy the shows!
