The City of West Palm Beach’s Community Events Department is launching a new drive-in entertainment option called “Show on the Go.” The “show” will be drive-in movies, with added entertainment, such as trivia before the movie, and the “go” refers to the rotating nature of the event (which will alternate between Dreher and Currie Parks).
The weekly series starts on Saturday, August 8 at Dreher Park across from the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, on the south side of Summit Blvd. Gates open at 6 pm and the movie starts at 7 pm and general admission tickets are $10 per vehicle and $30 for VIP, plus a small processing fee. Tickets must be purchased in advance and all information, including additional rules and a link to the ticket site, can be found by visiting the City’s website: www.wpb.org/events.
Upcoming “Show on the Go” movie schedule:
August 8: Despicable Me 3 (PG) – Dreher Park
The mischievous Minions hope that Gru will return to a life of crime after the new boss of the Anti-Villain League fires him. Instead, Gru decides to remain retired and travel to Freedonia to meet his long-lost twin brother for the first time. The reunited siblings soon find themselves in an uneasy alliance to take down the elusive Balthazar Bratt, a former 1980s child star who seeks revenge against the world.
August 15: Grease (PG) – Currie Park
August 22: Sonic the Hedgehog (PG) – Dreher Park
August 29: 50 First Dates (PG-13) – Currie Park
Additional movies will be announced as they are confirmed.
Important to know
Vehicles are limited to no more than 10 passengers or the legal limit based on vehicle size.
Campers, recreational vehicles, and passenger vans are not permitted. Larger vehicles, such as SUVs and trucks, will be placed on the outskirts and toward the back of the event space so as not to obstruct the view of other attendees. Blankets and chairs are encouraged and are the only items allowed outside of the vehicle. Facial coverings, and social distancing, will be enforced when using the restroom.
Animals, except for service animals, are not allowed.
The VIP option includes front row parking, or as close as possible, plus a family four-pack of popcorn, non-alcoholic beverages, and candy. Refreshments will be available for purchase and delivered directly to the attendee’s vehicle.
