Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks to Add Drive-In Movie Theater

David Bjorkgren

Last week, Montgomery County became home to a new pop-up drive-in movie theater at Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, writes Ellen Gray for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The movie theater opened with a showing of the cult classic Beetlejuice on July 23.

According to entertainment company Kilburn Live, pop-up cinemas are “designed to go into places where drive-ins wouldn’t otherwise normally exist.”

The new addition at the Expo Center is located at the Fairgrounds – in the area where Cirque du Soleil performed last year – and can accommodate 233 cars, according to a spokesperson for Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board.

People are being encouraged to practice social distancing and to not leave their vehicles during projections.

Tickets for the “Pop-Up Cinema” are sold by each car of people no matter and cost $25 for a car that has to hold no more than six people.

The latest drive-in theater is one of many that have been popping up around the country as this nearly bygone form of summer entertainment continues to make a comeback due to the coronavirus pandemic.
