One event on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at 10:45 pm
The Best Little Drive-In in HTX presents a drive-in screening of Almost Famous (2000), which won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
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 7:30pm and 10:45pm.
Attendees should arrive 30 minutes prior to the movie start time. New titles will be presented every weekend.
Set in 1973, the film chronicles the funny and often poignant coming of age of 15-year-old William (Patrick Fugit), an unabashed music fan who is inspired by the seminal bands of the time. When his love of music lands him an assignment from Rolling Stone magazine to interview the up-and-coming band Stillwater—fronted by lead guitar Russell Hammond (Billy Crudup) and lead singer Jeff Bebe William (Jason Lee) embarks on an eye-opening journey with the band’s tour, despite the objections of his protective mother (Frances McDormand).
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.
