Drive-In Movies Make a Pandemic Comeback

On Friday the 25th in Bucks County Pennsylvania, the Mid Atlantic Event Group hosted a drive in movie night to kick off their fall movie night series. This marks a new attempt at public events in Pennsylvania as COVID-19 gathering restrictions were recently rolled back.

On this particular night, cars began to drive in to claim their spots around six thirty. For this event, the movie is The Blind Side. Before the movie began, there were activities like corn hole and soccer set up for kids, and a variety of food trucks provided dinner options and snacks. 

A Mid Atlantic Event Group Staff member Kyle described how drive-ins bring back memories for some and new experiences for others stating, “I think we are bringing back the drive in experience, we personally never got to experience it because we were young but a lot of adults, when they bring their kids here, they love it. These are things we did when we were kids and now we can bring our kids here, so a lot of great memories. We’re really excited.”

COVID-19 precautions were taken very seriously throughout the event as guests were instructed from the very start to wear a mask and keep the safe distance of six feet apart. 

Sanitation stations were implemented on site while workers were also constantly patrolling restroom areas with the electrostatic disinfector. Staff member Corbin tells us, “We’ve been cleaning restrooms with the electric static and it disinfects it.”

The Mid Atlantic Event group will be hosting many more future drive in events throughout the month, capping off the series on October 30th with the showing of the movie Halloween.

 Gates open up starting at 6pm with the admission price of $40 per vehicle. If you’re interested in events like this and more, you can check out their website here.
