All American Drive-In
The most fun a family can have in one retro night! In the summer of 2013 we launched a new mini-event: the All American Drive-In. We decided to show a quintessential summer film, JAWS, for one night. We priced it family-friendly and within hours of its posting in the press, it sold out. The night of the Drive-In brought nearly a thousand guests.
Last year we served up six nights of seventies sellouts.
Guests parked their cars, strolled the historic park, and settled in for some old-fashioned fun. The snack wagon was hopping and the picnic tables were filled. The crowd munched popcorn and hot dogs as they took in the blockbuster on the big screen. Kids found themselves on the big screen as they answered trivia questions and won prizes. Everyone had a grand time!
Exciting Eighties at Historic Richmond Town. Three big, popular films!
in 2015, we bring back the All-American Drive-In for six more nights in August. Thanks to the Northfield Bank Foundation our screen size is 40 feet huge. Stereo sound is area-cast on FM so every vehicle has a super experience. In addition, loudspeakers bring the sound to those hanging out at the snack bar or at the picnic tables up front.
Hey, the All American Drive-In is a Film Festival!
Here's the most exciting part, the All American Drive-In is a short film fest. Before each feature we screen a selection of winning films. These are wonderful films that capture your imagination and showcase up-and-coming filmmakers.
The selection of shorts are selected by award winning professional judges from the world of film and television. They are independent filmmakers, network execs, producers, writers, directors and editors. These industry leaders are Emmy and festival winners themselves. If you want your short film seen by industry insiders and thousands of people then you know what you need to do...
Our All American Drive-In guests will see some of the best and most innovative independent short films produced today. These films transform the All American Drive-In into an international film fest. So for the price of one ticket you can see a classic popular film rarely projected on a huge screen and cool cutting edge films that you can't see anywhere else.

A large number of talented filmmakers wanted to park their film at the Drive-In. Over 1000 films from around the world were submitted! It took a lot of serious judging by our committee of award winning professional filmmakers and culture geeks to whittle down the long list to a select few. But we did it!
Congratulations to the following films that were selected be screened at the Drive-In.
