Moonstruck Drive-In Cinema at East River

Moonstruck Drive-In Cinema at East River will give Houstonians a contactless cinema experience under the stars on the site of Midway’s 150-acre East River development.

Feature films will be projected on a 40-foot by 80-foot structure made of shipping containers, offering a uniquely rustic atmosphere to complement the nostalgic drive-in theatre vibe. Audio will be broadcast through an FM transmitter to car stereos.

Food and beverages will be available for contactless purchase from local food trucks and Historic Fifth Ward and East End establishments, including The New Potato, The Funnel Bar, and more. Portable restrooms will be available for responsible use, and guests are encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing protocols.
