This past year, Thayer Family Dealerships decided to bring back drive-in style movies as the new norm. With the many challenges of COVID-19, regular summer events at the dealerships were halted due to social distancing & safety regulations. With hopes of getting out and enjoying the summer weather somehow, we decided to get creative and give community members a chance to get out for a few fun evenings, 6-feet apart.
After the first drive-in movie hosted at our Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership sparked the interest of many, we were excited to see what the rest of the summer would bring. Each free showing seemed to attract more guests as word got around. Luckily, we were able to accommodate everyone with plenty of space throughout each of our dealership lots. Complementary snacks, and movie-themed items were included at each showing. Some of our summer showings included: Trolls World Tour, The Sandlot, Onward, and Scoob.
Interest continued to grow after our first few summer drive-ins were complete, and we knew we had to keep the ball rolling. More movies, and themed nights were added going into late summer and fall. Some of our favorites were Ladies Night, where we played “Bad Moms” (for adults only, of course!) and worked with local shops and vendors to provide a fun evening out. Back to School night showing School of Rock, Ghostbusters night, and Hocus Pocus on Halloween were some of our other favorites!
We are excited to announce the continued efforts to provide more drive-in movie nights open to the public, beginning this spring. We will certainly be adding to the fun, with new movies and more, coming soon! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for upcoming information!
