After teasing its opening for the past few months, Drive-In Navigation in Houston is now open!
In 2020, drive-in cinema pulled a U-turn out of obsolescence. In the throes of the pandemic, drive-ins came in clutch to provide us with safe, much-needed entertainment and escape. While Houston has its fare share of drive-in theaters, there are none larger than the Drive-In Off Navigation. [Featured image: @rooftopcinemaclub]
Drive-In Off Navigation comes from the company behind Rooftop Cinema Club, which opened back in 2018. Now, the club is rebranding itself as city drive-in, boasting a 64-foot screen in H-Town.
“After ending a wonderful 7 months at Sawyer Yards, we’re excited to announce our new drive-in home,” the cinema wrote in an Instagram post ahead of their soft launch back in December. “The beautiful location in East Downtown has most recently been home to the out-of-this-world @spacecityshows pop-up, and we’re thrilled to carry on our shared passion for providing Houstonians with a place to safely escape into the world of cinema.”
The theater originally planned to celebrate their official grand opening on January 21, but would eventually hold off until recently.
An assigned parking space will be designated upon arrival – meaning first come first served. Food and drinks will also be available on the grounds. Seating outside the vehicle is now allowed.
Ticket prices vary from $22 – $27. The former buys entry to up to two guests, while the latter reserves space for three or more.
Given the circumstances, the club is taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of customers and staff. To see a full list of these measures, visit here.
Other screenings this month include: Clueless, The Bodyguard, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty In Pink, Coming To America, and more!
