After success last winter, Dan Gilbert's Bedrock and Emagine are bringing back the Monroe Street Drive-In in downtown Detroit on Nov. 12. The space had been as a roller rink this past summer.
The space features updated artwork from Detroit’s Sheefy McFly and new open-air complimentary seating outside the car. The theater, which has 62 parking spaces, will show family-friendly films on a 60-foot by 32-foot digital screen Thursday through Sunday evenings through spring.
“Last winter’s Monroe Street Drive-In Powered by Emagine showed us that thousands of families across metro Detroit need more safe, approachable activities to enjoy in their downtown, especially during the colder months when we’ve all been cooped up for so long,” Ivy Greaner, chief operating officer at Bedrock, said in a statement. “The theater is back this year for its sequel, but this time we want to do even more. We hope that the addition of outdoor seating and local artwork will help make this season unforgettable for all the right reasons.”
The attraction will have nine new outdoor seating pods, each with room for four people, for those who want to watch outside a vehicle.
Tickets are $20 per vehicle and can be reserved at DetroitDriveIn.com, starting Nov. 9 at noon, or purchased at the gate on movie nights.
