Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-in closes out summer with Spielberg films, sing-alongs, and back-to-school classics

0

Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-in is wrapping up its summer season with cult-classic films, sing-alongs and an interactive dinosaur exhibit.

Owner Josh Frank said summer is typically when the drive-in, located at 12419 Lowden Lane, Manchaca, features special tributes and family-friendly events.

“In the summer we like to show fun week-long marathons and mini-movie fests celebrating movie genres or directors,” Frank said.

This summer the drive-in is screening Steven Spielberg classic films including “Jurassic Park” and “Jaws” as part of its “Summer of Spielberg” series.

In partnership with UT’s Hall of Geology and Paleontology, on Aug. 19 and 26, guests can visit an interactive dinosaur display featuring dinosaur bones and other educational information.

The Blue Starlite summer lineup also includes back-to-school classics such as “Dirty Dancing” and the sing-along version of “Grease.” The Labor Day Weekend Series will officially close out summer with screenings of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “The Breakfast Club.” Tickets range between $5-$35.

“We’ve had a great summer,” Frank said. “People have been coming out every week and we’ve really been able to embrace that.”
