Sometimes the best way to move forward is by going back. Few would have imagined that the safest way to see a movie in the year 2020 would be by attending an old-fashioned drive-in. Yet, that’s precisely what the City of Parkland has planned.
On Friday, May 29. a free, no-ticket-required drive-in feature of “Call Of The Wild” at the Equestrian Center is planned.
While gates for entry open at 6:45 p.m.. for guest parking, the movie begins at 8:15 p.m., as the city will wait for the sun to fully set for the screen to become completely visible. Please note that while arriving early does not guarantee a better spot, the city will begin parking cars in pre-measured rows to ensure everyone has a great view of the screen.
Attendees are permitted to sit outside of their vehicle in a lawn chair or on a blanket, but only cars and bikes are permitted into the event. Be sure to bring your snacks as concessions will not be available.
Take the family and make sure your FM radio is working and start up your car after being in the house for two months. This is a pre-summer treat you won’t want to miss.
Parkland’s Equestrian Center is located at 8350 Ranch Road, Parkland, FL 33076.
