Artpark adds more feature films to drive-in series


Fri, Aug 7th 2020 03:10 pm

Artpark & Company announced more feature films confirmed for its new drive-in series.

In a nod to Artpark’s popular “Tuesdays in the Park” concert series, these evenings now feature films made for music fans. On these Tuesdays, Artpark is showing music documentaries, concert films, biopics and other music-related content. The newest addition to the series will be “Stop Making Sense” at 8 p.m. Aug. 25. Jonathan Demme's concert film captures the enormous energy and joyous highs of the Talking Heads live performance and is regarded as one of the best rock movies ever made.

Artpark previously announced a special screening of “The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration” at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 11. Demand was so high that a second screening has been added for 7:30 p.m. Aug. 18. “A National Celebration” was the final show of the Tragically Hip’s “Man Machine Poem Tour” recorded Aug. 20, 2016, at the K-Rock Centre in their home town of Kingston, Ontario. It contains all 30 songs from the night’s set-list, and the recording captures an unparalleled, nation-linking occasion.

Films shown on Thursdays appeal to general audiences. The 1980’s classic “The Goonies” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 13. T-MOBILE is sponsoring this “Community Night” screening and vehicle tickets will be complimentary. Details on how to obtain tickets are available at www.artpark.net.

Drive-in movie nights are intended to be a safe alternative to large gatherings. Two LED screens are positioned in parking lot D, the large lot nearest the South Fourth Street entrance. One screen is set in the “Painted Parking Lot” for VIP and walk-in patrons (walk-in tickets do not include a parking space). Audio for the films will be transmitted via car FM radio. Tickets are $25 per vehicle (up to four people per vehicle or walk-in group), which includes $8 admission and a $17 concession credit. VIP lot tickets are $35 (subject to availability).

Tickets are advance sale only. Visit artpark.net or tickets.com to purchase online. Service fees apply for online orders. Call 716-754-4375 to purchase by phone from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, or one hour before movie showtime if still available.

Artpark is spacing parked vehicles 6 feet apart. Patrons are permitted to sit outside of their vehicles but must provide their own seating. All patrons must wear a face mask whenever they are not seated. Click here for complete safety protocol information.
