Movies Under the Stars: This Weekend and Beyond

21 August 2009 2,970 views 3 Comments

I’ve always wanted to go to a drive-in movie and have never been but with cooler nights coming soon, I’m starting to think about being outside again and enjoying an outdoor film and a picnic. Both Whole Foods Austin and Treat have started showing classic films from the 70s, 80s, 90s on site.

Treat is offering a different theme each week — “Back to School” continues through Wednesday and will be followed by “Time Travel.” All films start at 8:30 p.m. and are projected onto a 1959 Teardrop trailer at the Austin Trailer Park and Eatery (Home of Torchy’s Tacos) at 1311 South First Street. Guests are invited to bring their own alcoholic beverages while enjoying concessions like frozen hot chocolate, shaved ice, s’mores, brownies, and more.

dd20_img_11Whole Foods is partnering with Alamo Drafthouse to offer a different movie every Friday night through October. They feature a $15 special three-coursed menu each week or guests can purchase anything they like from the store and bring it up to the patio for the 7:30 p.m. film.

Tonight’s picks include Dirty Dancing at Whole Foods and Fast Times at Ridgemont High at Treat. Treat continues with Grease, Summer School, Real Genius, Rock N Roll High School, and Animal House through next week.

    I want to come too! I have fond memories of drive in movies as a kid. We had so much fun sitting in convertibles and watching movies. Good times!

    love,
    mom
