BEAUFORT, N.C. (WNCT) – Drive-in movie theatres are making a comeback in the town of Beaufort.
The Beaufort Picture Show nonprofit group is building a venue for movie-goers.
The parking lot in the Gallants Channel, near the Town Creek Marina will allow between 75-100 cars.
Organizers are offering drive-in viewing because COVID restrictions prevent them from operating their small movie theater inside a brewery.
They’re confident people want a way to get out of the house to do something fun.
“It’s better than watching it on your couch, is what we figured and we believe there’s a pretty good demand for it, so we’ll see but I’ll bet it’ll be widely popular,” Billy Kane, president of the organization.
Opening night is October 2, with a showing of Black Panther. Tickets will start selling online tomorrow.
