Everyone’s favorite Canadian funnyman is coming to the Mahoning Drive-In Theater for a one-night-only “I Want Candy” double feature, on Friday, July 1st, on 35mm!

First up, He’s crude. He’s crass. He’s family. Oh yes, it’s UNCLE BUCK (1989)! John Candy stars in one of his most beloved roles, as the gruff but lovable Uncle Buck, unconventional babysitter for his two nieces and a nephew, in John Hughes’ classic 80s comedy costarring Macaulay Culkin and Amy Madigan.

Next is the John Hughes-penned family comedy starring John Candy and Dan Ackroyd, THE GREAT OUTDOORS (1988). A week in the woods with Roman (Candy) and Chet (Ackroyd) …This is no holiday, this is war!  See two 80s comedy icons in a battle of wills as a family vacation becomes a game of winner-take-all one-upmanship in this fresh-air comedy classic.

Join us for a celebration of John Candy on the big screen, and savor the flavor of two sweet comedy classics on 35mm!

..And Attention Families.. For this holiday event we will be offering FREE Overnights for children under 13! (must have a general ticket). As always, Children 4 and under are FREE;)

Gates open at 6pm, show starts at dusk.
