The PDX Drive-In Movie Spectacular!
The Portland Expo Center is pairing two of America’s great passions this summer – the automobile and the silver screen. If you grew up going to drive-in movies, you know what a treat it is to travel with your family or date to see a movie in your car. Many think those days are long since gone, but worry not! The Portland Expo Center is creating an authentic drive-in movie experience to be played on a giant screen this summer on Expo’s 53 acre campus. The PDX Drive-In Movie Spectacular! is an all-ages event that has all the familiar fun with a modern twist. Unlike the traditional drive-ins of days gone by, The PDX Drive-In Movie Spectacular! allows families and friends to enjoy watching clear digital projection from inside the comfort of their own car or outside in lawn chairs. In place of the rustic speaker box, sound will be accessible via car radio through a special FM frequency, in addition to outdoor speakers for bicyclists and pedestrians.
The summer movie series is slated for 5 days: August 24- 28, 2016. Features include musical entertainment and support for a local community non-profit parnter Paint Paul PDX.
