ArtPark has added some movies and new dates to their Drive-In Series including Harry Potter, and the final concert from The Tragically Hip.

Who would have thought that 2020 would be the year of the Drive-In?  It certainly has been...from movies to concerts, people have been packing in. We've seen sold out concerts from Garth Brooks and huge lineups like Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, Gwen Stefani, and Parmalee.

It's something that used to be huge back in the 50's and 60's but has just kind of been hanging on since then.  For awhile there were more closed in the US than were in operation.  But the ones that have hung on through the years are definitely becoming paramount for entertainment in 2020.

In June, ArtPark announced that they would be holding a special Drive-In Series of movies that were music themed or oriented on Tuesdays and movies for a general audience on Thursdays.  They've already shown movies like Rocketman, Dirty Dancing, Grease, School of Rock, and more and now they've added some dates and movies to their list.

According to WIVB, here are some of the movies that are coming up:

  • August 4 (8 p.m.) – Almost Famous
  • August 6 (7:30 p.m.) – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • August 11 (7:30 p.m.) – The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration

They show the movies on LED screens in the parking lot and the audio is transmitted over your FM radio.

Tickets are $25 per carload and include a $17 concession credit.

ArtPark can be found at 450 S 4th St, Lewiston, NY 14092.
