The Charles City Chamber drive-in double feature is set! Saturday, October 17th, starting at 7 p.m. at the Charles City High School parking lot. JAM DJ Systems has been hired to come in with a big screen and projection equipment to show a family night double feature of The Goonies, followed at 9:10 p.m. by another American film classic, ET- The Extra Terrestrial. Attendees will be able to listen to the movies through an FM signal to their car radios.
Director Mark Wicks says the event is a makeup:
“With the cancellation of Party in the Park this summer, our organizing committee really wanted to try and offer some type of community activity for people to enjoy and to do so safely.”
Admission will be a free-will donation to support Community Revitalization, whose fundraising ability was hard-hit by the pandemic this year. Concessions will also be available on site, with popcorn from the Charles Theatre. The high school is providing use of the parking lot and restroom facilities at the football concession stand.
