Angelo Civic Theatre will host a free drive-in movie at 6 p.m. Nov. 20 and 21, at 1936 Sherwood Way.  

Parking will open at 6 p.m. for anyone attending the event, and the Christmas movie “Elf” will begin at 7 p.m.  

The concession stand will be open for snacks, and guests are encouraged to bring portable radios to tune in to the movie. 

“The drive-in movie theater is a response to the pandemic,” ACT artistic director Brent Jenkins said. “The performing arts are suffering and one of the things we are doing is the drive-in movie to raise money.” 

The idea of a drive-in movie was to raise money at the beginning of the year when the pandemic started, but ACT agreed to continue the event in the future. 

“It turned out to be a nice little fundraiser,” Jenkins said. “People really seem to enjoy it and have fun to come see the shows.” 

Masks will not be required in the comfort of guest vehicles, but only for outside use guests will need to wear a mask and social distance themselves. 

“This is a fundraiser for the theater, and we haven’t had a live play in a while,” Jenkins said. “This is another way to support the ballet, Be Theatre, Angelo State - we all are trying to find our way through this pandemic.“
