The Awesome Fest Drive-In - Planes, Trains, & Automobiles & Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

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.

It’s officially the start of the holiday season and we couldn't think of a better Thanksgiving classic then the warmhearted John Hughes comedy Planes, Trains & Automobiles! Quote along with some great Steve Martin / John Candy banter! Stick around after for one of the best bad movies of all time, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. You have to see this one (with a crowd) to believe it. To further capture the holiday spirit, our always-reliable food trucks on site will be serving thanksgiving / holiday themed dishes for those who enjoy wandering around the drive-in.

$0.25 - $19.33
