The drive-in movie theater days were long gone in El Paso -- well, at least the non-porn type -- and then coronavirus happened, and now drive-in style movie screenings are a thing.

The Plaza Classic Film Festival is the latest to embrace the nostalgic, socially distanced entertainment option with its first ever parking lot drive-in move tour.

Due to restrictions and guidelines put in place to combat the pandemic, the film festival is popping up drive-in style events every night this weekend and the next.

Selections this weekend include the classic Steven Spielberg thriller Jaws and Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. Details on the weekend screenings are below. You'll find everything else you need to know before you go at THIS LINK.
