Crossroads Center Opening Drive-In Theater This Weekend
Crossroads Center in St. Cloud will be opening up a temporary drive-in movie theater in their parking lot across from Target on 3rd Street starting this weekend.
A traveling drive-in theater company called Cinema Pop-Ups will be opening up on Friday, June 26 with a showing of the film Gravity. It's a PG-13 film from 2013 starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.
You're asked to stream the movie audio to your phone or tablet with the Cinema Pop-Ups mobile app. They will have complimentary access to Wi-Fi via their own network or you can listen to the movie through your FM radio receiver. The film starts at 8:30 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m.
The pop-up theater opens up 60-90 minutes before the film starts and is based on first come first serve. To buy your tickets, you need to download their app or go to their website. You just need to choose the date and time you want to attend and the number of tickets. You can pay with your card on the app or website. You'll be emailed your tickets. That's it!
Gravity will be the first in the summer film series. The full list of movies and dates has not been released yet. The Crossroads Center website says, "Stay tuned for more details on the full Cinema Pop-Ups series & schedule, coming soon!"
If you're wondering what the food options are for concessions, Crossroads Center's parking lot is also currently home to Miller's Concessions: Fair Food. And, according to mall management, you can bring in your own food. You'll be able to get your fair food fix and catch some flicks under the stars. This sounds like the perfect summer date night.
Crossroads Center is located at 4104 West Division Street in St. Cloud.
