WHAT IS THIS?

This is a series of drive-in movies and in-car activities at The Museum of Human Achievement.
Our Mission | An Enjoyable Community Cinematic Experience: Alone but Together in Our Cars.

If you find anything about this programming confusing please reach out via email and we will talk to you! Info at the museumofhumanachievement.com

Cars will tune into a radio station for movie audio and will be provided with a walkie talkie for optional socializing. Ultimately, we’re going to hang out and have a nice time together. Our main rules to remember are car doors shut and windows up.

We plan to continue this programming indefinitely throughout the pandemic.

If you want to present something or rent the drive-in for your friends, click here to inquire.

THE GROUND RULES

Keeping everyone safe and healthy while trying to create small moments of joy, community and coming together is our highest priority. Here are the rules we’ve made for ourselves and any attendee.

⚀ No one leaves their car and everyone keeps their windows up.

⚁ In the case of an emergency we will be there for you, but come prepared (use your own bathroom before you come!) to keep your windows up and not leave your vehicle.

⚂ 10 car capacity. We want to have intimate and manageable moments together. It’s likely things will sell out! No tickets sales will be available at the door.

OTHER DETAILS

⚃ Everything from tickets to production to each activity will be either running or falling apart by the efforts of only a few people. You’ll meet us (from a distance inside your cars). It’ll be fun.

⚄ No one has to participate in anything, but it would be cool if you did. We’re trying to capture the missing sensation of passing the aux cord.

⚅ Together we will watch at least one full length movie or media that’s movie length each night but will not explicitly be saying what that movie is in advance. You can reach out to ask us for more info!

⚅ ⚀ We acknowledge that is a bummer to have an event that is so car-centric and apologies to all of our non-car friends. If we see wild success in our drive-ins, domes are our next step.

SPEECH NIGHT
w/ ​👽🚀🗽🇺🇸 (Epic Deed, Nanny Ed!)

It’s speech night baby!! In celebration of National Grammar Day we’re hosting our first ever Speech Karaoke night!! That’s right, pick the pieces of your broken brain off the fucking floor and then check it out! It’s like karaoke but instead of all our favorite songs, it’s all of our favorite speeches from movies! You text Zac a youtube link to the speech you want to do, we project it with the audio muted and the subtitles on and you give the speech through your freshly sanitized walkie talkie! You could throw down your best Charlie Chaplin The Great Dictator repenting speech, channel that Henry V energy and do the William Wallace Braveheart one while pretending you’ve got a cool horse to giddyup, or do like, literally any sports movie halftime locker room rally speech! Then we’re gonna watch the extremely good Will Smith / Jeff Goldblum alien movie and when the president does THE speech we’ll all do it together!!
