Want some entertainment away from home? Local business owners from ALX Community and The Garden are launching the Alexandria Drive-In Theatre, and starting August 29, one of six classic films will run every Saturday through the beginning of October in the parking lot of the Victory Center on Eisenhower Avenue.
The parking lot can hold up to 215 cars per screening, and the movies are:
- Jurassic Park, Saturday, August 29
- Back to the Future, Saturday, September 5
- Trolls, Saturday, September 12
- Field of Dreams, September 19
- ET, September 26
- Mamma Mia, October 3
“Our fall series of movies will hopefully lighten your heart and any worries you have while you and your neighbors enjoy a few hours together, apart,” said Kelly Grant, Chief Operating Officer for the ALX Community coworking office.
Tickets will cost $30 per car, and proceeds will go to ACT for Alexandria and Athena Rapid Response. Face masks will be required for patrons who leave their cars. The gates will open at 7:30 p.m. and the movies will start an hour later.
There will also be food trucks from Curbside Kitchen at the property, which was purchased by Stonebridge earlier this year. Vendors include The Chewish Deli, Gemma Gelato, Capital Chicken & Waffles and Bangkok House Food Truck.
“I love movies,” said Allen Brooks, Chief Operating Officer of The Garden. “During this pandemic, we want to be able to bring an opportunity to gather again and experience the joy of watching some of the classics and contemporary favorites.”
