All American Drive-In is Back!

PRESENTS


featured box driveinThe 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.

Indie Films Graphic

Over 1000 short films from around the world were submitted to the All American Drive-In. The Committee is currently selecting the best short films to screen at the Drive-In.  Top winners will get a prize. And 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 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.  The list of short films chosen to be screened will be posted here on August 1st.

Short Film Extravaganza!

We are honored to bring you these films.  Film on SI has had a long and successful history. It's fitting that Historic Richmond Town showcase the work of filmmakers from the New York area and around the world.

Topless House Gets a Hat!

Kruser Finley 001Kruser-Finley House c. 1790 Pre-FireSI LIVE-260pxFirefighters try to save the houseSI LIVE 4-260pxFlames spread to roofOn August 28, 2013, a devastating fire raged through the historic Kruser-Finley House at Historic Richmond Town. The flames took the roof and most of the second floor of the landmarked c. 1790 house. The structure lost its roof and was in sore need of repair. Before restoration work could begin the home needed a overhead protection to shield it from the rain and snow - a hat!

NARI-HIC  called us immediately after the fire...

And that's what the topless house got thanks to the generosity of the National Association of Remodeling/Home Improvement Contractors of Staten Island (NARI-HIC of Staten Island) a non-profit Trade Association of licensed and reputable contracting firms that donated their support to build the protective covering over the Kruser-Finley House.
