CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin announced the City of Charleston will host drive-in movies through the summer.
“We are desperate to feel connected to one another. I can’t think of a better shared experience and still remain safe and socially distant than coming and watching Aladdin, Lion King, or my personal favorite Jumanji.” said Goodwin.
Movies are scheduled to take place in June, July and August:
- Jumanji: The Next Level, 9 p.m. Friday, June 12, 2020.
- Fletcher’s Grove with Parachute Brigade, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 1, 2020.
- Aladdin, 9 p.m. Friday, July 10, 2020.
- The Lion King, 9 p.m. Friday, August 14, 2020.
Each movie night will begin with a 30 minute cartoon.
Parking will begin 90 minutes prior to each event and be on a first come, first served basis. Tickets for each event must be reserved as the lot has a limited capacity.
Each vehicle needs one reserved ticket but not one ticket per person. Tickets for the drive-in movies can be reserved on Eventbrite beginning 9 a.m. Friday, May 22.
Tickets for Aladdin and The Lion King will be released at a later date.
