One event on Friday, July 31, 2020 at 9:50 pm


This event was rescheduled from Saturday, July 25, 2020 due to heavy rains. 

The Best Little Drive-In in HTX presents a drive-in screening of the Academy Award-winning film Whiplash (2014), starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons, at Shady Acres Saloon.

The weekly and socially-distanced drive-in movie experience 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.


Andrew Neiman (Teller) is an ambitious young jazz drummer, in pursuit of rising to the top of his elite music conservatory. Terence Fletcher (Simmons), an instructor known for his terrifying teaching methods, discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into the top jazz ensemble, forever changing the young man’s life. But Andrew’s passion to achieve perfection quickly spirals into obsession, as his ruthless teacher pushes him to the brink of his ability and his sanity.

Simmons won an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his work on the film.
