All American Drive-In is Back!
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.
They parked their cars, strolled the historic park, checked out some classic cars and then settled in for some an 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. It was another Historic Richmond Town success story.
This year we bring back the All-American Drive-In for six nights in August. Thanks to the Northfield Bank Foundation we now have doubled our screen size to 40 feet. Stereo sound will be area-cast on FM so every vehicle will have a super experience. In addition, loudspeakers will bring the sound to those hanging out at the snack bar or at the picnic tables up front.
It's the super seventies at Historic Richmond Town. Three big, popular films! Plus present-day short films. What a mix of madness and fun on one big screen! It means hours and hours of amusement for the whole family. And don't forget our snack bar filled with candies you remember and love.
