DETROIT (WXYZ) — Bedrock and Emagine Entertainment are partnering up to open a drive-in theater in downtown Detroit.

The theater, called the Monroe Street Drive-In located at 32 Monroe Street, will have an opening night screening of "Jurassic Park" on Jan. 22.

“Movies have always offered us a couple of hours to unplug and escape, and that has never seemed more important than now,” said Ivy Greaner, Chief Operating Officer at Bedrock, in a press release. “The drive-in theater is our way of offering the community a way to get out of the house and safely enjoy a night out for the whole family.”

Emagine says the drive-in experience will feature a modular concessions pavilion serving traditional movie theater snacks. There will also be warming areas, plantings and public restroom trailers.

The theater will enforce all of the latest COVID-19 health and safety regulations, including social distancing and mask wearing guidelines while guests are outside of their vehicles.

Showtimes will begin at 7 p.m. every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday beginning January 22, 2021 with:

  • Friday, January 22: Jurassic Park - 1993
  • Saturday, January 23: Shrek ­- 2001
  • Sunday, January 24: Back to the Future – 1985

Tickets will cost $20 per vehicle and will be available in the coming days at
