There is truly nothing quite like watching a classic live-action movie on the big screen. This summer you can watch the new Lion King the old-school way. Instead of heading to a typical theater with uncomfortable chairs, go to Silver Moon Drive-In theater for an unforgettable night under the stars.
The new Lion King movie will be showing on July 19th and this is a great opportunity to connect once again with Simba, Mufasa, Timon and Pumbaa. The computer-animated remake from the 1994 film has received good critics and this movie is the perfect choice for a date with your partner or a night out with the family.
This is one of the most anticipated Disney's live-action films of the year. According to their website, the drive-in has two screens usually showing first-run movies. The best way to watch the newer films is to come early to grab the best spot in the parking lot.
Entrance fee for the drive-in theatre is $6 per person 9 years old and above. The box office opens at 6:30 pm on Friday and Saturday and at 7:30 on Sunday through Thursday. The venue only accepts cash and if you are thinking of bringing your own food, there is a $5.00 food permit fee. Alcohol is prohibited at the facility.
Currently, the drive-in theater has a snack bar with the finest food. Besides, is better to get your food prepared on the spot. They sell old-fashioned theatre food such as golden corn dog, icy cold drinks, chilly dilly pickle, soft pretzel, hot chocolate, popcorn, nachos and even a breakfast menu with biscuits, sausages, eggs, and more. Who said you can't have breakfast for dinner?
