It's a blast from the past and with the current situation, drive-ins in Tampa, Dade City, Ruskin and Lakeland are thriving!

One positive of life with the coronavirus has been the re-emergence of drive-in movie theaters. With most movie theaters still locked up due to the coronavirus, cars are lining up to enjoy the movies the way we did back 30 or 40 years ago. Drive in theaters from Tampa to Ruskin are open and are enjoying more business than they’ve seen in years.

Two of the greatest classic family movies will be shown tonight in Lakeland, according to Channel 8. A fundraiser for the Central Florida Speech and Hearing Center will feature screenings of The Goonies and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Gates open tonight at 7 at the Silver Moon Drive-In. Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory goes on at 8:45 followed by The Goonies at 10:45. Admission is $10 for adults and kids 10 or under are $10. [Source: Channel 8]
