It's Cinema a Go-Go Night at the Theatre Lawrence Drive-In

Cinema a Go-Go is heading back to the big screen at the Theatre Lawrence Drive-In Friday, August 7, and Saturday, August 8, for the 1951 film classic - The Royal Wedding.

The Royal Wedding features Fred Astaire and Jane Powell who play a brother and sister dance act in this lighthearted musical. Tom (Astaire) and Ellen (Powell) take their act to England where they are set to perform for Princess Elizabeth's wedding. Both siblings find romance in England which creates a rift in their rehearsal schedule. This classic musical film features many iconic dance numbers and tunes.

Gates open at 8:30 p.m., and the film will start around 9 (or as soon as it gets dark enough). KPR will have a prize giveaway at the end of the film. You can enter to win* for the Friday, August 7, giveaway here and enter to win for the Saturday, August 8, giveaway here

We want to keep everyone as socially distanced and safe as possible, so see the guidelines below for the Theatre Lawrence Drive-In event.
