DRIVE-IN MOVIE NIGHT ~ Saturday, September 27

TJ & crew has planned a drive-in movie night for youth at the Silver Moon Drive-In located at 4100 New Tampa Highway (or 4100 US 92 W - about two blocks west of Publix warehouse) on Saturday, September 27th. Plan to arrive at 8 PM and look for the cars belonging to TJ, Andrea, Matt & Malinda. You can drive yourself OR your family is welcome to come and stay OR your parents can drop you off at the entrance at 8 PM and youth staff will be there to meet you. We will watch only the first movie, so pick-up time will be at 10:30 PM at the exit.

The cost is $5 per person. If families stay, children under age 10 get in for $1. If you are being dropped off, bring along a lawn chair. Bring extra money for the concession stand. The movie showing in that time slot will be announced closer to the event, so STAY TUNED!!
