There will be a $5-per-vehicle admission fee. The first 50 vehicles admitted will receive a 61 Drive In frisbee, and everyone who attends will receive a FREE glow stick until supplies are gone, according to a Sunday release from the theater (located 36 miles north of Davenport).
Prior to the movie at 9 p.m. Monday, July 4, they will have FREE activities for all to participate in – a bounce house, petting zoo, train rides, face painting, giveaways and other fun. The gates will open at 6 p.m. and movie will start at approximately 9 p.m. or dusk.
The 61 Drive In Theatre is one of only four drive-ins still operating across the state of Iowa, and they are noted for their grass field so patrons can bring along a radio and lawn chair while watching the movie.
“We love providing first-run movies, as well as family and budget friendly entertainment,” the 61 Drive-In release said. “We pride ourselves on not only providing affordable quality entertainment with our state-of-the-art digital projection system, but also providing a family-friendly environment with free train rides, swing set, sand box, basketball court, whiffle ball diamond, tether ball, and volleyball for our guests.”
The concession stand also offers a large variety of treats and goodies, including movie popcorn. They also allow customers to bring their own food if they’d like and tailgate prior to the movie.
