SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — The California Center for the Arts, Escondido will host drive-in live concerts and a movie series this month.

The concerts and movie screenings will be held at the former Nordstrom parking lot at Westfield North County at 8 p.m. Spaces for more than 250 vehicles will be made available and spaced apart to keep listeners distanced.

The scheduled shows start on Aug. 14 with a showing of the classic musical Grease and continue on Aug. 15 and 16 with a performance by Jersey Boys stars Christian Hoff and Travis Cloer. Hoff, a Tony Award-winning actor, is best known for his portrayal of the role Tommy Devito from the Four Season’s and Cloer is the longest-running actor to play the role Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys.

Tickets to the general public will go on sale on Aug. 1 at 1 p.m. here or by calling 800-988-4253. Tickets start at $35 per car.

A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit the Escondido Community Foundation and The Central San Diego Black Chamber of Commerce Foundation.

The drive-in series may extend into the fall, the center says.
