On July 22-23, a winter wonderland (minus snow or cold temperatures) returns to The Mahoning Drive-In Theater in the heat of summer, as we once again celebrate “Christmas In July”, with two beloved family classics on 35mm!
We start the evening with the 80s holiday powerhouse A CHRISTMAS STORY (1983), a tribute to the original, traditional, one-hundred-percent, red-blooded, two-fisted, All-American Christmas, one boy’s quest to receive his under-the-tree Holy Grail, an Official Red Ryder Carbine Action Two Hundred Shot Range Model Air Rifle (with a compass in the stock and a thing that tells time).
**In addition to this family favorite film, we’ll be joined by Zack Ward, bully Scut Farkus himself in person! Zack will be available to meet before and between films, selling autographs and posing photos for a fee. If that wasn’t a Christmas Morning in and of itself, the mighty Mahohing production team will create a CHRISTMAS STORY-themed photo op you won’t want to miss!
Our second feature will be the immortal classic WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954), the VistaVision, Technicolor spectacle starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Mary Wickes, directed by Michael “Casablanca” Curtiz! WWII vet song-and-dance men team up with a sister act to save the rural Vermont inn of their former commander, with songs by Irving Berlin, in this all-time classic.
In addition to the films, we’ll have themed snack bar items, raffles, decorate-your-car contests, and more!
Dust off your sleigh bells and throw on your shorts and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at the most comfortable time of the year!
