The PDX Drive-In Movie Spectacular!

Drive-In Movies are back!

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 oh no! The Portland Expo Center created 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 back for its 4th year! Our drive-in 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 outdoor speakers.  

The 2018 summer movie series is slated for 5 days:  August 15-19. Features include musical entertainment and support for a local community non-profit parnter .
