The Awesome Fest Drive-In - Grease & The Blob

The Awesome Drive-In - Grease & The Blob

This year marks the 80th anniversary of the drive-in movie theater. To celebrate this distinct slice of Americana, The Awesome Fest is proud to announce the creation of their very own drive-in at one of the most unique and beautiful settings that Philadelphia has to offer: The Oval, which resides directly in front of the majestic Philadelphia Museum of Art. Opening on October 18th with weekly double features through November 15th, The Awesome Fest will transport attendees back in time on a nostalgic trip to experience the drive-in at the peak of its heyday, complete with food servers on roller skates, courtesy of the Philly Roller Girls!

In honor of the original ticket prices in 1933, The Awesome Fest and presenting sponsor Enterprise CarShare have designed a 25-cent ticket for all existing Enterprise CarShare members. Additionally, front row parking will be reserved for members arriving early. The screenings are free for anyone who arrives via foot, with a select number of vehicles provided by Enterprise CarShare available for those who choose to sign-up onsite. There’s no cost to join and you will receive $15 in driving credits upon activation. Tickets for attendees who do not have a membership are $19.33 (the year of the first drive-in) per vehicle.

Join us for Grease and this special evening of sing-alongs and open mics with a beloved musical that features one of the greatest drive-in sequences in movie history. Yes, that’s right, we’ll have microphones set up in front of the screen for anyone who wants to join in on the fun and sing along to one of the best musicals of all time. Stick around after for the original version of The Blob, the film that is playing during the aforementioned drive-in sequence in Grease! Enjoy the old-fashioned ooze and ahs(!) of the colorful monster classic that stars a young Steve McQueen. Local trivia: The Blob was shot nearby; you'll no doubt recall the now-infamous theater sequence at The Colonial Theater in Phoenixville.

$0.25 - $19.33
