Drive-In Movies Come to Downtown Detroit

Drive-in movie theatres have definitely made a comeback during the pandemic, and one is about to make its way to Downtown Detroit. The Monroe Street Drive-In will make its debut this Friday night at the intersection of Monroe Street and Farmer Street. They will be kicking things off with an older favorite, the original Jurassic Park from 1993. Next on the lineup for Saturday night is Shrek, followed by Back to the Future on Sunday night. 

After this weekend, the plan is to have movies at the drive-in Thursday through Sunday night. The cost is $20 per vehicle and guests are encouraged to pre-purchase tickets online here. There may be some tickets sold at the gate as well, but it's best to play it safe and buy yours in advance. Each night, the movie is set to start at 7 p.m. The gates will open at 6 p.m. and you have to be in the lot, parked in your assigned spot no later than 15 minutes before the movie starts. Then, tune your FM dial to the designated station, and kick back and watch your favorite flick. 

There will be concessions available at a tent on site during the movie. Or, if you want to make a night of it and do dinner and a movie, you can order delivery from one of your favorite nearby restaurants. Just place an order through Grub Hub, UberEats, DoorDash, or whatever your preferred delivery app is, then put the address as 815 Bates St., Detroit, MI 48226. Make sure you also put your parking stall number in the notes. Once your food arrives, one of the Come Play Detroit ambassadors will bring your delivery right to your vehicle. The theatre does ask that you please make sure to place your orders by 8 p.m. to make sure that you will get your food while the movie is still playing. Outside food is also permitted, but grills will not be allowed. 

The Monroe Street Drive-In expects patrons to practice social distancing while on site and wear a mask when outside of your vehicle. They also ask that if you do plan to visit the concession stand, just send one person from your party to buy your treats. There will also be restroom trailers on site if you need them, but please wear your mask and social distance while there as well.
