Adventure '85

On August 21 & 22, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater invites you to adventure like it's 1985! In these trying times, it's important to treasure our friends who've carried us through hardship and have accompanied us on our own adventures, big or small.

We open our incredible journey with a map; an ancient pirate map that takes us to deep underground to a mystical (and often dangerous) world below in the Richard Donner classic, THE GOONIES. Next, we return to the planet's surface and continue onward... to space! EXPLORERS by Joe Dante will inspire us to reach new heights (literally)!

“WHATEVER” Weekend

Get in loser, we’re going to the Drive-In for “Whatever” Weekend, October 2nd and 3rd!

We've got two fetch features from the turn of the millennium, taking on the trials and tribulations of teen girls who just wanna fit in, but may need a trip to the mall to go from Monet to Betty.

First celebrate the 25th anniversary of the 90s classic CLUELESS (1995), starring Alicia Silverstone as a Beverly Hills High student with an eye for matchmaking and makeovers, who sets about turning oddball Brittany Murphy from ugly duckling to swan.. Followed by MEAN GIRLS (2004), with Lindsay Lohan as the new girl in school who finds herself in with the in-crowd of not-so-nice ladies. And, yes, perfectly timed to screen on “Mean Girls Day”;)

Remake Double Take: The Thing

*This event has moved! For your health and safety, we have rescheduled this show for OCTOBER 23 & 24*

Some kind of 'thing' is coming... We're taking a Remake Double Take! We set off on an arctic excursion with the original 1951 classic, the epitome of 50's scifi, “THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD” followed by John Carpenters gripping frostbitten freak-show, 1982's “THE THING” which transforms our evenings expedition into an outright nightmare of shape-shifting extraterrestrial terror! It's two classic films and two distinct adaptations across two nights of sci-fi screams!
