Drive-In Movie Series

Fall Drive-In Movie Series Logo.png

Reinventing the classic moviegoing experience, the Coppell Arts Center is excited to announce the continuation of the Drive-In Movie Series for the community.  The Arts Center turns its newly constructed parking lot on the west side of the Center into a drive-in theater for a safe, comfortable entertainment experience the whole family will enjoy.

The Drive-In features will range from classic movie titles such as Jurassic Park to family favorites like Shrek.  In October, the Arts Center will present a Halloween favorite Hocus Pocus and in December, Elf and A Muppet Christmas Carol will be featured. Tickets are available online-only for $13 per vehicle

Big D Kettle Corn will be on-site selling popcorn and drinks at the Drive-In.

In support of the City of Coppell's #BeVocalShopLocal campaign, the community is encouraged to pick up meals from their favorite Coppell restaurants to enjoy at the Drive-In while viewing the movie.

The Drive-In Movie Series will start September 12th and will feature two movies a month through December 19th. Gates will open at 7:00 pm, and the feature will begin at 7:30 pm.
