GONZALES, La. (BRPROUD) – So what is the best way to watch a movie during COVID-19?

Movie theatre, at home, how about a drive-in movie theatre?

Well now, everyone has the option to watch some classic movies from the comfort of their car at a local venue.

Starting at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, October 21, viewers can watch classic movies at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center.

Organizers provided these details about the drive-in experience:

Massive screens will be set up in different parking lots at Lamar-Dixon, and sound can be
tuned in on car radios. Tickets must be purchased online ahead of time, and parking will be
assigned on arrival. Concessions can be ordered by downloading the food app.

If all of that sounds good to you, these are some of the movies and games you can catch in the near future:
