HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Families looking to get out of the house will soon have a new option. The Innsbrook Foundation is starting a drive-in movie series.
The first movie, "A Star is Born," the 1937 version, will be shown Thursday, July 16 in the Highwoods One parking lot at 10900 Nuckols Road in Glen Allen.
"The drive-in will feature classic movies from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s displayed in HD on a 40 ft screen," Innsbrook Foundation marketing manager Stephen Kasper said. "Boomtown Richmond will provide audio transmission for vehicle radios and concessions will be provided by local vendors including The Byrd Theater."
Families are encouraged to arrive at 8 p.m. The movie begins at 9 p.m.
“Our hope is to use the Innsbrook Drive in to create a safe, family-friendly way for everyone to get out of their homes and have some fun while maintaining social distancing. We have wanted to create a drive-in movie theater in Innsbrook for years and we saw this as the perfect time to do so," Yvonne Mastromano, Executive Director at the Innsbrook Foundation, said. “While we definitely want to have fun, we also want to be safe. We will be closely monitoring updates from our local, state, and federal officials to ensure we do not compromise the safety of our patrons.”
Tickets are available on Innsbrook.com for $20 per car.
