Summer Drive In Series -Soft Launch – “The Sandlot”

June 18, 2020 @ 8:30 pm

The City of Salem and Creative Collective present the 2020 edition of the Summer Drive-In series. We are excited to be welcoming The Cabot and Root to this event for amazing concession options! Come in early and grab a drink, some food, and enjoy the pre-show!

Tickets ($25) are available here.

Gates: 7:30PM

Movie: 8:30PM

You will be entering at the far end of Forest Ave at the second entrance to the lot, please enter via Canal Street. 

ATTENTION! This is a soft launch of a summer drive-in series at an all-new location! As we try and work out safety and tech issues at a new location we ask you to be patient and we will want some constructive feedback!

If you have joined us for any of the other drive-ins, this is a bit of a stripped-down version until we get into later phases of re-opening. The audio will ONLY be available via FM transmitter, at this time we will NOT be setting up speakers as we typically do at the Winter Island Drive-ins.

Keep your car owner’s manual handy

If using the radio to listen to the movie, you’ll need to know how to keep it on while keeping off headlights and other accessories in your vehicle– you may need your car manual for that. Additionally, every car has its quarks with headlights, alarm systems, automatic doors, interior lights, etc. It’s best to have the most accurate info handy to solve issues fast.

PLEASE make sure and remove all trash and personal belongings at the end of the movie, there will be trash and recycling receptacles available. 

The actual start time of the movie is dependent on sunset and weather. We try to start the film no later than 8:30 PM. We will start car load-in at 7:30 PM. Full details with instructions will be sent out to buyers the day before the event.  Make sure to use an email address you frequently check. We will be relaying the information about the radio station that will be used upon arrival!

The Cabot – Concessions and Audio


Projection and Lights by Retonica


The Sandlot

Scotty Smalls moves to a new neighborhood with his mom and stepdad, and wants to learn to play baseball. Rodriguez, the neighborhood baseball guru, takes Smalls under his wing – soon he becomes part of the local baseball buddies. They fall into adventures involving baseball, treehouse sleep-ins, the desirous lifeguard at the local pool, the snooty rival ball team, and the travelling fair. Beyond the fence at the back of the sandlot menaces a legendary ball-eating dog called The Beast, and the kids inevitably must deal with him.
