The Return of the Drive-In
Drive-ins haven’t really been a thing since the sixties. But COVID-19 has made us long for pleasures from the past, and a little genie is happy to make it so. Well not exactly a little genie; more like the Alexander Film Society. The group is hosting an outdoor “drive-in” screening of a Spanish-version of Black Panther at the Healdsburg Community Center on July 11 at 8 p.m. Tickets are free; come early to secure one. On July 24 at 8:30 p.m., the group is also hosting a Wonder Woman “drive-in” at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds in Cloverdale. Tickets, which are $30 per car, can be purchased at avfilmsociety.org/events/july-24-carpool-cinema. Moviegoers must only come with members of their own household, must stay inside their cars except to use the restrooms, for which they must wear masks. In addition to drive-ins, the society is also hosting several virtual/streaming film events. See avfilmsociety.org for more information.
