Welcome to the Drive-In! Art by Eva Adderley
The nostalgic magic of enjoying a drive-in movie on a warm night has never been more needed than it is now. Our Drive-In Movie Extravaganza is an artistic spin on a classic summer treat, featuring cardboard art cars parked in front of a shadow puppet screen. Festival-goers may choose to participate by sitting in one of our whimsical cars and watching the shows, or by becoming the show themselves! Attendees interested in getting creative may go behind the shadow screen where they will get to select a genre-specific theme song and pick from a delightful array of shadow puppets with which to tell their stories. Throughout the night, there will also be pre-made shows by local professional shadow puppeteers for viewers to enjoy. We can’t wait to see you at the drive-in!
