State Fair Park adds July drive-in movie nights
If you enjoyed the Miller Park drive-in experience but can't wait until August to do it again, you're in luck.
Beginning July 10 and continuing for three weekends, Wisconsin State Fair Park will air double-features in the north parking lot, where the films will be shown on a 40-foot screen while audio is transmitted through car radios.
Admission is just $15 per car load with no restriction on the number of people in a vehicle, but Fair Park officials are encouraging movie-goers to make sure that everybody has the ability to "buckle up." Cars with at least four non-pherishable food items will get admission for just $10 and walk-ins are welcome at just $5 per person.
Gates and vendors will open at 6:30 p.m. and movies begin at dusk.
Here's the lineup:
Friday, July 10 -- "Shrek" / "American Graffiti"
Saturday, July 11 -- "ET" / "Star Trek: Wrath of Khan"
Friday, July 17 -- "Sleepless in Seattle" / "Goldfinger"
Saturday, July 18 -- "Spider-Man" / "Iron Man"
Friday, July 24 -- "Raiders of the Lost Ark" / "Journey to the Center of the Earth 2008"
Saturday, July 25 -- "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" / "Inkheart"

People should make a trip out of it and see some first-run movies at either jefferson's hwy18 or kenosha's keno drive-ins. My wife and I do this about once a month and it's always a blast.
Nice. These seem a little more family friendly than the movies played at Miller Park. Great idea, though. Going to the drive-in was always a fun time.
