From our friends at the CACTUC DRIVE-IN:
On Saturday evening July 16, a drive-in movie will be shown to the public, at the Cactus Drive-in Foundation’s temporary location, for the first time since 2009 when the DeAnza (formerly Cactus Drive-In) closed for business. The Cactus Drive-In Theatre Foundation, Inc. is a new non-profit corporation organized to rebuild a community oriented drive-in theatre in Tucson.
The temporary location for the Cactus Drive-in is on the Avenida Del Convento just south of the Mercado San Augustin building.() It is located just west of I-10 on Congress and then south on Avenida Del Covento. It will be an exciting night since this will be the beginning of a new community drive-in for Tucson. This event will the first of a series of fundraisers to help make The Cactus Drive-In Theatre a reality. We will be showing a family type film enjoyable by all ages as well as a cartoon and a nostalgic presentation.
More details of the fares, opening time and the film selection will be given in the next few weeks. We hope for a great turnout to show the community’s support for this new vision for the future.
Please MARK your calendars for the event and tell your friends!
