Classic films return to the big screen
By Emma Rausch
Season passes and a new, throwback film series are now available at the 13-24 Drive In.
On June 4, the outdoor theater began Retro Reels, a film series offered Thursday nights throughout June with a $5 carload admission.
The film series’ addition came about as an idea to expand the drive-in’s programming, according to Andrea Zwiebel, Honeywell Foundation program manager.
“The drive-in seems to be a whole different audience than the guests that come to Eagles Theatre and they seem to be really passionate about the drive-in property,” Zwiebel said in an interview with The Paper of Wabash County.
“We thought that the natural way to pay tribute to the drive-in model was to do some throwback movies.”
