Drive-in movie theaters are the summer activity of quarantine! This wouldn’t be the first time we’d be posting about something like this during the pandemic, but it’s starting to pick up traction in other areas. Growing up, drive-ins were the old school outing, but it was considered more of a treat than a constant. For example, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve actually been. However, the Fort Mason location is quite exciting not just cause of proximity, but because it’s a good use of the space.

Beginning September 18th, the drive-in will operate for a month showing two films six days a week until October 18th. “Minions” which will be airing on Friday, September 18th at 6PM is already sold out! One ticket comes at a price for $49 and covers however many people you can fit in your car. For more info, click [here]
