According to Lavery, the outdoor movie company brings a 40-foot inflatable screen and a popcorn cart to make it happen. Movie sound is broadcast to your FM car radio and food is ordered on your phone and delivered to your car. The entire process from ticketing to entry is contactless.

“We have worked with the people behind this company for 10 years now on various events,” Lavery said about the Drive In Dudes.

“When COVID hit, they pivoted from dance parties to drive in movies. We knew it would be a hit in Gainesville!”

The movie lineup is as follows:

Shrek (Thursday June 18th at  7:50 PM)

Frozen II (Friday June 19th at 7:50 PM)

Jurassic Park (Friday June 19th at 10:20 PM)

Guardians of the Galaxy (Saturday June 20th at 7:50 PM)

The Goonies (Saturday June 20th at 10:35 PM)

Monsters Inc. (Sunday June 21st at  7:50 PM)

Twister (Sunday June 21st at 10:10 PM)

Lavery said, “Make sure to buy tickets in advance. Tickets are limited and often sell out.”
