Opening
Weekend '22

The wait is over!

Announcing the 2022 Mahoning Drive-In Theater season opener, our annual trip back in time with two beloved family classics, THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939) and WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (1971)!
On April 29-30, we present our traditional opening double feature, a time for friend and family to come together and celebrate classic cinema under the stars with two films so many of us grew up with, from annual TV broadcasts to early home video, filled with pure imagination that took us over the rainbow to magical lands filled with sparkling wonders.
First we join Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion as they dodge the Wicked Witch in search of THE WIZARD OF OZ. Then, after a brief intermission, everyone gets a Golden Ticket to enter the tasty, tantalizing (and occasionally terrifying) world of WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, the most musically munchable movie of all time!
In addition to both films presented in glorious 35mm, we’ll have a live DJ set before the films, themed décor and photo ops, costumed characters, special food items, raffles and one lucky winner each night who’ll find a Golden Ticket in their popcorn, redeemable for fabulous Wonka-worthy prizes!
..And Attention Families.. For this event we will be offering FREE Overnights for children under 13! (must have a general ticket purchase)

The evening kicks off with Julie Andrews in the film that made her a star, Walt Disney’s MARY POPPINS, in which we learn the meaning of “supercalifragilisticexialidocious” (even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious), and thrill to the eternally charming Dick Van Dyke as chimney sweep and Poppins pal Bert, in a tale of a magical nanny who breezes into the lives and hearts of the Banks family.

Once that spoonful of sugar has gone down, Dick Van Dyke returns in the most fantasmagorical entertainment in the history of everything, CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG (1968)! Based on a book by James Bond creator Ian Fleming (with a screenplay by WILLY WONKA scribe Roald Dahl), this wonderful whimsical wheelie takes us on a grand tour of musical adventure, wherein the titular car brings fuel-injected fun and vanquishes the creepy Child Catcher, all to the tune of toe-tapping motoring melodies!

VAMPYRTY '22 (*all night Dusk Till Dawn on Sat.) on 35mm

Sharpen your fangs and dust off your capes, it’s time for everyone’s favorite filmic undead undulation, Vampyrty 2022!

This time we partner with Exhumed Films to drive a stake into Saturday night boredom with a 1970s five-film dusk-to-dawn vampathon that that’ll feature more exposed teeth than an Osmond Family dental chart!

Friday kicks off with a 35mm double feature of two African-American oral acupuncturists, BLADE (1998), starring Wesley Snipes as the half-human, half-vampire daywalker with a talent for foiling fellow fangers, followed by the AIP classic BLACULA (1972) starring William Marshall as Prince Mamuwalde, cursed by Dracula to a life of vampirism in the 1700s, released from his coffin in the 1970s.

Saturday’s dusk-to-dawn all-nighter kicks off with the sequel to the ‘72 classic, SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM (1973). African Voodoo stirs Prince Mamuwalde to kill again! Co-staring Pam Greir.

Next up is Werner Herzog’s remake of a silent coffin classic (celebrating its 100th anniversary this year), NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE (1979), starring Klaus Kinski as Count Dracula and Isabelle Adjani as the focus of his affliction.

Now that you’ve got your fangs wet, we thread up CRYPT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1973), in which Andrew Prine accidentally unleashes long-buried vampires on an unsuspecting island village. Oops!

We then get into the ghoulish groove with YOUNG DRACULA (aka SON OF DRACULA, 1973), a super-rare rock and roll musical starring Harry Nilsson as the toothy titular Count, who performs seven songs with a backing band that includes Peter Frampton, John Bonham and Keith Moon. Costarring Ringo Starr, this rock comedy-horror film was directed by Hammer and Amicus veteran Freddie Francis, anywho two years earlier helmed our final feature…

If you’ve made it this far, we invite you to wrap up this undead all-nighter with THE VAMPIRE HAPPENING (1971), a funkily fangy freakout in which an actress inherits a Transylvanian castle, unaware that she’s the doppelgänger descent of a vivacious vampire vixen who’s decidedly not deceased, and satiates her sanguinary desires in the nearby seminary!

All films presented on 35mm, stakes and garlic not provided.. but encouraged.

Sunday Essentials is a series of single-feature 35mm presentations highlighting classics from all genres, with themed trailers and introductions by authors and film scholars, providing context and insight into the films screened.

A black and white suspense classic that delves deeply into the dark heart of greed and fanaticism.

As part of our Essentials commitment to cinema education and exploration, we’ll be joined onscreen for an introduction by Preston Neal Jones, author of HEAVEN & HELL TO PLAY WITH: THE FILMING OF THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, giving insight into the film and its production.
