Starting next week, Lamar-Dixon Expo Center will host Movies on the Mississippi with a fun lineup of Family Friendly Halloween Drive-In Movies, your favorite Halloween flicks plus treats!!
Drive-in movie theaters, an entertainment staple from the late 1950s to the early ’80s, are exactly what they sound like: a large outdoor screen visible from the comfort of your own car, using a radio frequency or external speaker to hear the audio. Now they’re being resurrected as a way to have an in-person viewing experience while adhering to social-distancing guidelines.
Lamar-Dixon Expo Center has taken the cinematic experience to an entirely new level. From childhood nostalgia and classic films to recent releases, Live stream tailgating events, live music, and much more.
Movies on the Mississippi will have classic snacks & drinks at concessions: popcorn, soft drinks, bottled water, snack packs, candy plus food trucks. They respectfully ask that you do not bring in any outside food or drinks in order to help support local Food Trucks and vendors that have been greatly affected by events being canceled due to COVID.
