Blue Starlite Drive-in Downtown

Check out the newest location of the Blue Starlite Drive-in starting this weekend. See "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" or a comedy show this weekend. Tickets are $45 for a car slot for two people and includes a concessions package of popcorn and candy. The downtown location will stay up through October.

NOTE: This event is no longer happening this weekend due to technical difficulties.

“Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties unrelated to the theater, we are postponing the opening weekend of the drive-in movie theater. Austin Energy is currently addressing an issue with their equipment that is located on the same level of the garage as the Blue Starlite Drive-in. We intend to begin showings on Wednesday, Sept. 2, and appreciate the overwhelming support we have received from the community since announcing the downtown rooftop location.”

Dazed and Confused at Pinballz

The Pinballz location in Buda is offering a parking lot drive-in with car-side food and beverage service. This Saturday at 8:30 p.m., it'll be showing an Austin classic: "Dazed and Confused." You can get a standard ticket for $30 or a premium ticket for $45. The movie is rated R, so children under the age of 17 are not allowed without a parent or guardian over the age of 21.
