The drive-in movies schedule features popular, family-friendly movies:

  • July 23: Spaceballs
  • August 6: Clueless
  • August 20: Caddyshack
  • September 3: Cars

The cost is $20 per car, with gates opening at 7pm and the movie starting at dusk. Tickets are on sale today through Facebook. Each showing can only accommodate so many cars, so get your tickets early.

The event will also include food trucks, and dessert vendor. Patrons are also invited to arrive early to shop the stores in the New Hartford Shopping Center.

Drive-in movies are making a comeback since regular theaters have been closed since March. On Wednesday evenings, the Kayuta in Remsen is hosting drive-in movies, and Little Falls also has a drive-in movie schedule.

Darryl Hogan and his partners have started 'Gypsy Films' - a mobile drive-in theater. They partner with the "Brake From the Grind" food truck and "Squeezer's Lemonade" to create a complete movie-going experiencing while maintaining social distancing.
