With many movie theaters having to be closed due to the pandemic, Celebration Cinema has changed the way movie lovers can watch films with their new “sunset cinema.”

While drive-in movie theaters aren’t a new commodity, there has been a resurgence due to theaters being closed. Celebration Cinema is adapting this model, minus the cars. 

This event will only take place at their downtown location, Studio Park, on Ionia Ave.

Studio Park will be hosting four different movies outside in the coming weeks. The viewing will be in a picnic style. They will be screening “Knives Out,” “The Iron Giant,” “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse,” and “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.”

Tickets are sold in sections of four, each being $5. Due to everything being outside, moviegoers are required to bring their own chairs or blankets, chairs do have a height limitation of 36 inches. Tickets are available online. They have been selling out quickly so it is advisable to get them in advance. ,

The venue will be selling drinks and food from One Twenty Three Tavern as well as bar service. If viewers buy from either they can get their parking validated. While guests are able to bring their own snacks, you may not bring in your own beverages.

Masks aren’t required when seated, however Studio Park does ask their customers to wear them when walking around. For more information on the rules, click here.
