San Antonio-area movie lovers now have a way to return to the cinema while keeping their social distance.
EVO Entertainment Group has converted the parking lot of its Schertz location into a drive-in theater that will offer nightly film screenings. Friday's opening night show
— Marvel's Spider-Man: Far From Home —
will begin at sunset, around 7:30 p.m.
Just like the old days, guests will tune into their AM/FM radios to access sound. All films will end by 10 p.m. in compliance with curfew restrictions.
Admission is free, but guests are encouraged to RSVP
online to guarantee a parking spot.
"Our current climate has challenged us to adapt and develop innovative ways to continue to provide entertainment to our communities," EVO Entertainment Group CEO Mitch Roberts said in a statement.
The EVO Drive-In will also feature a contact-free way to order food using a mobile ordering interface built for this initiative. When orders are ready, food runners wearing nitrile gloves will drop it off at the vehicle's driver-side door. EVO asks for filmgoers to keep their doors closed until the runner is approximately 10 feet away.
