Drive-in Movie Theater In Lorton Opens For family-Friendly Entertainment

The Workhouse Arts Center will be presenting movie entertainment for the whole family adapting to the special circumstances of COVID-19 with the need for social distancing. This will be done with drive-in movies on the Workhouse campus. The drive-in movies will bring back what was once a staple of summertime entertainment throughout Northern Virginia and the nation. The first weekend will feature “Beetlejuice” on Friday, June 12, and ”Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” on Saturday, June 13.

According to Lorton Connection, “Historically, decades ago, there were thousands of drive-in theaters in the United States. Now there are about 500 screens, at 300 locations. Fairfax County Drive-in locations such as the Lee Highway Drive-In located on Lee Highway and Gallows Road gave way to what is now the Mosaic District. The Super 29 on West Ox Road, off Lee Highway (US Route 29) was demolished decades ago.”

As per Lorton Connection, “The Workhouse Arts Center Drive-In aims to create an opportunity to bring families and the community together. Beyond social distancing, other Covid-19 precautions will include Cars parked in every other space. Restrooms open at the rear of building 7 or 8. Only one person permitted in each restroom at any time (unless a guest requires assistance from companion). Restrooms will be wiped down at touch points after each guest exits.”
