Drive-In Movie Screening of Empire Records at Shady Acres Saloon
Saturday, August 1, 2020 | 7:45 pm
One event on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 9:50 pm
The Best Little Drive-In in HTX presents a drive-in screening of Empire Records (1995), featuring early career performances by Liv Tyler and Renée Zellweger.
The weekly and socially-distanced drive-in movie experience, located at Shady Acres Saloon, features films inspired by live music and shown on on an LED movie screen.
Spaces are available for 15 vehicles per screening. Shady Acres Saloon will also be selling food and drinks.
There are two screenings of the film, at 7:45pm and 9:50pm.
Attendees should arrive 30 minutes prior to the movie start time. New titles will be presented every weekend.
Joe (Anthony LaPaglia) runs Empire Records, an independent Delaware music store that employs a tight-knit group of music-savvy youths. After learning that the shop may be sold to a big chain, slacker employee Lucas (Rory Cochrane) bets a chunk of the store’s money, hoping to get a big return. When this plan fails, Empire Records falls into serious trouble, and the various other clerks, including lovely Corey (Liv Tyler) and gloomy Deb (Robin Tunney), must deal with the problem, among many other complications.
Social Distancing & COVID-19 Precautions
Attendees will remain in their cars throughout the presentation, with a special program set-up for using the restrooms. Face masks are required at all times when outside of vehicles.
Businesses around Greater Houston and the State of Texas are opening up and individual social distancing practices vary from location to location. Masks are still strongly encouraged and recommended to help reduce the spread of the virus and help protect your neighbors.
