LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A drive-in movie theater is opening at The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass Aug. 7.

The drive-in will show Ferris Bueller's Day Off Aug. 7 and Raiders of the Lost Ark Aug. 8. The company said attendees will use their phones to order food delivered to their car in an attempt to keep things touch-free amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Radios will not be loaned out to anyone wanting to listen outside their car.

Admission is also cashless only, USA Drive-Ins said. Tickets start at $4 per children or $20 per car. To purchase tickets and look at showtimes, visit usadrive-ins.com.

"These drive-ins are a new and updated, albeit retro, component of centers, that give shoppers added reason to visit their local retailers and are a fun entertainment offering to the community," Horizon Group Properties  Managing Director James Harris said. "To top it off we know this exciting attraction will have safety as a priority."

According to Horizon Group Properties, the drive-in theater will double as an esports arena that can serve as a place for esports events and tournaments, following current COVID-19 guidelines.
