There's certainly no shortage of things going on around eastern Iowa right now, and if a trip to the drive-in sounds good to you, I've got just the thing. Oh, and it's free.
The City of North Liberty is hosting a free drive-in theatre Friday night, June 18 at Colony Pumpkin Patch. And yes, it's a double feature.
A Much Earlier Start Than Your Typical Drive-In
The second-best part of the whole thing, sorry you can't top free, is that these movies won't run deep into the night. They're using a LED screen in North Liberty, so you can see the screen even though it won't be anywhere near dark when the first movie begins at 6 p.m.
This Friday's Movies and Schedule
Friday, June 18, the parking lot opens at 5:30 p.m. with Trolls World Tour (Rated PG) showing at 6 p.m. If you'd like to stay for the second movie, you can do that. If you're coming just for the second show, which is Crazy Rich Asians (Rated PG-13), the lot opens for the second movie at 8 p.m. The movie starts at 8:30 p.m.
First Come, First Serve
The drive-in will accommodate up to 200 vehicles in the Colony Pumpkin Patch grass lot... 2780 Front St. NE in North Liberty. No reservations are possible... vehicles will be parked as they arrive. You'll be able to hear the movies through your vehicle's FM radio. If you are sitting outside a vehicle, there will be a small speaker at the front between the screen and the first row of vehicles.
Concessions are available, beginning at 5:30 p.m. You can also bring snacks and non-alcoholic beverages with you. No alcohol is allowed at the event.
Are There Other Drive-In Nights?
North Liberty will be hosting another drive-in night on Friday, July 16. Movies for that evening will be announced on Thursday, July 1.
