This Event Is Cancelled ‘21 Disaster at the Drive-In This years theme commemorates the old school drive-in movie experiences.
Burns already have this feel to them when it comes time for the fire performances and the effigy entertainment, everyone gathers around to watch the show. A sense of community forms during that time while we watch with our loved ones, friends, and even family. We all “ooo” and “ahh” at the sight, we yell and clap, we hold hands, kiss, and embrace. We are all connected in that moment whether we’re right next to each other or across the field, we are all witnessing and taking part at the same time.
Help us rebuild our community as we start to come together again. And what better old school Drive-In movies are there then those that give you the scene of suspense and horror? And what better place to experience one than on a camping trip, out of town, in the secluded wilderness? Creepy setting, creepy movie, bring the DISASTER!
We’ll be showing the movie Night of the Living Dead (1969 directed by George A. Romero) projected onto our effigy area at sundown. This movie doesn’t have an official MPAA rating but please be advised it does contain “gruesome violence” so if you choose to not watch, or are guardians of minors attending that you choose to not expose to the film, please avert from that area while the feature is being presented.
TEIC This year will be set up a little differently than in the past, the parking will be structured so the film can be viewed from your vehicle for those who do not yet want to be in crowds, but of course you can remove yourself from the parking area if you’d like to. While this film is very heavily zombie themed we welcome all expressions, especially those that are Horror/Sci-Fi movie/Drive-In related.
