Drive-in movies coming soon to a lawn near you

A lineup of classic films on the lawn at Open Space for Arts Community will show throughout July.

Those who have missed the big-screen magic of movies can get a retro fix this summer, at the new Night Light Drive-In, a partnership between Vashon Theatre and Open Space for Arts & Community.

The socially-distanced cinematic splendor has already begun, with the presentation of “Jurassic Park” opening at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 1, and showing again at 9:30 p.m. Friday, July 3, on the great lawn of Open Space. “Field of Dreams” will play at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, June 2, and again at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, July 4.

Doors open at 8:30 p.m. for all the shows taking place from July 1 to 4.

The lineup of classic films on the great lawn will continue Wednesdays through Saturdays until Labor Day, with start-times varying between 8:45 p.m. and 9:15 p.m, as follows:

  • July 8 and 10: “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial”
  • July 9 and 11: “Gravity”
  • July 16 and 18: Double Feature: “Back to the Future” and “Animal House”
  • July 22 and 24: Double Feature: “Liar Liar” and “The Big Lebowski”
  • July 23 and 25: “Mad Max Fury Road”
  • July 29 and 31: “Forrest Gump”
  • July 30 and Aug. 1: Double Feature — “They Live” and “Get Out”

August films will be announced soon.

“We were driven by COVID-19 to find creative new ways to build community,” said David Godsey, co-founder of Open Space. “Designing this experience with our partners at Vashon Theatre has allowed us to dream up a communal experience that follows health guidelines.”

Tickets will only be available in advance at vashontheatre.com, beginning Monday, June 29. When purchasing tickets, movie-goers should carefully read ticket directions and acquaint themselves with the event’s safety protocols.
