“Movies have always offered us a couple of hours to unplug and escape, and that has never seemed more important than now,” Ivy Greaner, chief operating officer at Bedrock, sats in a press release. “The drive-in theater is our way of offering the community a way to get out of the house and safely enjoy a night out for the whole family.”
The Monroe Street Drive-in, near Campus Martius Park, will have showings on a 60-by-32-foot digital projection screen every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. for $20 per car.
"Traditional movie theater concessions" will be available, the announcement says. "There will also be warming areas, plantings and public restroom trailers."
Buy tickets in advance here or at the drive-in on show nights.
