The drive-in movies return to Vashon! Open Space for Arts and Community and Vashon Theatre have teamed up for the return of the Night Light Drive-In. Movies for all ages begin on Memorial Day weekend on the Great Lawn at Open Space.
Showings are weekly and run through the first weekend in October, most weekends Thursday through Sunday. The first weekend spotlights Hook (PG, 1991), Steven Spielberg’s reimagining of the Peter Pan story starring Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams, and Julia Roberts. The full June movie schedule will be released later this month.
According to David Godsey, Open Space for Arts and Community co-founder, “Designing this experience with our partners at Vashon Theatre has allowed us to dream up a communal experience that follows health guidelines. Especially now, when it’s so challenging to find ways to socialize safely, we are all thrilled to be able to offer this to our Vashon community.”
Night Light Drive-In also serves Vashon Theatre favorites. Food Pre-Orders are accepted until 7:00pm for Same-Day Pick-up. Your order will be sent to the concessions counter and will be ready by the time gates open on the date you specify.
The Night Light Drive-In follows all local, state, and federal COVID -19 requirements and recommendations. The Night Light Drive-In recommends that the audience brings a portable FM Radio or boombox because the movie soundtrack will be broadcast on FM radio. Vehicles are arranged by height, so that taller vehicles are in the back. Movies will run in the rain, so please plan accordingly if the weather will affect your ability to enjoy the show.
Tickets and concessions are available at VashonTheatre.com. Tickets are $20 per car for classic movies, and begin at $10 per car for new movies.
