GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. -- The Goochland Drive-In Theater announced Monday it planned to open this weekend despite calls from the president and governor to limit gatherings of 100 people or more.
The owners of the drive-in believe watching movies in your car may be the perfect form of social distancing.
"Enjoying a movie at a drive-in theater has always been about the comfort of watching from your vehicle or stretching out under the stars without being shoulder to shoulder with someone in a crowded theater," they posted on Facebook.
"That being said, we want to ensure peace of mind to everyone - so we have decided to modify a few aspects during these unusual times."
Here's a list of changes guests can expect:
Parking limited to 70% of capacity
Markers placed in service lines at Snack Bar to separate folks
Condiments will be handed out in packets
Patrons may bring in their own food for an extra $15 per vehicle paid at the Ticket Booth along with admission and will be provided a food permit to display
Crew members clean and sanitize bathrooms
Doors to the restrooms will be propped open to allow fresh air and to avoid touching the door.
PLAYGROUND - CLOSED
The playground will be closed
