SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – More drive-in entertainment is coming to Escondido’s Westfield North County mall as summer comes to a close.
In August, the California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE) hosted several drive-in live concerts at the former Nordstrom parking lot at the mall on 272 E Via Rancho Parkway.
From September through November, the same mall parking lot will be the site for weekly drive-in movie screenings. Spaces for more than 250 vehicles will be made available and spaced apart to keep moviegoers safely distanced.
Doors for the screenings will open at 6:30 p.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis. Movies will begin at 8 p.m.
The schedule for September:
- Thursday, Sept. 3: Cars
- Thursday, Sept. 10: Inside Out
- Friday, Sept. 11: Jurassic Park
- Thursday, Sept. 17: Tangled
- Friday, Sept. 18: Mamma Mia!
- Thursday, Sept. 24: Shrek
- Friday, Sept. 25: Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark
The schedule for October and November is expected to be unveiled sometime in mid-September.
Tickets are $50 per car and can be purchased at artcenter.org/events or by calling 800-988-4253.
Snacks can be bought at the same time tickets are purchased, and special drive-in dinner boxes and specials can be purchased at the screenings through the mall’s restaurant partners.
A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit the CCAE, Escondido Community Foundation and Central San Diego Black Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
