Movies Under the Stars: This Weekend and Beyond

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 …
