Milwaukee Recreation presents first-ever Family Drive-In Movie Day

April 15, 2021

This spring, Milwaukee Recreation will host the first ever Family Drive-In Movie Day. Three (3) family-friendly movies will be played throughout the course of the day at Milwaukee Public Schools Central Services Building (5225 W. Vliet St.). Admission is $20 per vehicle, per movie.

The event will take place on Saturday, May 15 (rain date May 22). Physical distancing measures will be in place and masks will be required while outside of your vehicle.

This will be one of the only drive-in movie experiences in the city of Milwaukee. Families can sign up to see one movie or all three. Popcorn and water will be provided, but families are encouraged to bring additional snacks to eat during the films.

“We are really excited about this brand new event,” said Lauren Lopez, Recreation Manager. “We know folks are looking for something fun and different to do right now and we think this is a great way to get out of the house and have some quality time with your family while staying safe and socially distant. We hope everyone will enjoy the movies and we can continue the event for years to come.”
