Looking for a perfect summer night activity? Search no further, because on Friday night, a new movie theater drives in to Pacific Beach.
Full Moon Drive-In will take over the parking lot of Pacific Beach Middle School from July 20 to mid-September.
The space can fit 180-200 cars in the lot, with prices ranging from $10 to $20.
Don’t feel like driving? No problem. There’s also a lounge-area for people who want to bring their beach chairs to the drive-in.
For this week’s showing, roughly 80 people have already purchased tickets online. The first movie featured this Friday is “Top Gun.”
“We like to involve our fans,” said David Adler, a partner with the Mexican-based theater company. He also said if all things go well, they’re hoping to stay at the middle school on a long-term basis.
Full Moon Drive-In isn’t the only outdoor movie theater in San Diego. Three other locations in the county open year-round
South Bay Drive-In east of Imperial Beach has three screens showing the latest movies, which prices staring at $7. In East County, Santee Drive-In also offers up new movies seven days a week.
If you want to enjoy movies outside without using a car, Cinema Under the Stars in Mission Hills – featuring older films on a large outdoor screen.
With nighttime weather in San Diego warming up, there’s no reason to skip out on a drive-in. So head out and enjoy outdoor movies before things cool down.
