Atlantic Area Chamber to Host Drive-In Movie Experience This Weekend

The Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Meyer & Gross Real Estate and the Atlantic Community Promotions Commission, will be hosting a Drive-In Movie experience this Saturday, Sept. 7.

“Last year, was the first time we tried this idea out and had 350 people attend the movie, so we knew it would be a welcomed idea again this year,” Bailey Smith, Executive Director at the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce said.

“The Drive-In is a fun, nostalgic experience for community members and those in the surrounding area to enjoy. This also gives us the opportunity to show off our town and encourage people to shop and eat before coming to the movie,” mentioned Smith.

The Drive-In Movie will be at the Cass County Fair Grounds in the grandstand area beginning around 8 p.m. with a showing of “Grease.” Cars may begin parking at 6 p.m. The screen is 60 feet long with a high definition projector. Speakers will be available next to the screen for people to utilize. A transmitter will be provided for those enjoying the movie from their car. Attendees will turn their radio to a certain station and the transmitter will play the audio through their car speakers.

Entry is $5 per car or $2 per person for car-less entry. People are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on. Parking will be available on the other side of the fair grounds for car-less entry attendees. Inside parking for the Drive-In is limited, so pack a chair or blanket as precaution. Each attendee will receive a free bag of popcorn and one free drink. Additional beverages will be $2. Popcorn refills and candy will be available for $1.
