    Rejoice, drive-in fans! Doc's is still showing films, with a new “Get out, go home” policy. Purchase everything online, even food and drinks, so you never have to leave your vehicle. They’ll direct you to a spot and you'll tune in on your car radio to hear the film. Concession orders will be placed on the roof of the car, so you don't have to worry about potential unsafe interactions. It's a safe, fun way to get out and see a movie on the big screen.

    The Princess Bride (1987)

    Blue Starlite Round Rock has been blue without you, but they’re back with ESD screenings. That’s code for “extreme social distancing,” meaning you stay in your car the entire time, no exceptions. If you’d like to pick up food beforehand, preorder meals and concessions with your tickets and drop by the Salt Lick down the street on the way in. Then buckle up and enjoy the film, ESD style. For schedule updates, check the website or text “Starlite” to 797979.

    Roar (1981)

    Weird Wednesday: In keeping with the cultural moment we are having thanks to Tiger King, Alamo Drafthouse re-releases Roar, a weird and wild tale of humans living alongside dozens of lions and tigers (no bears). Often called "the most dangerous movie ever made," reputedly no animals were harmed during the filming, but 70 cast and crew members were. The film will be available starting April 15, and will feature a Q&A with co-star John Marshall. Some of the proceeds will go to a fund assisting members of the filmmaking community. Read a full review of Roar.
