Fun family flicks are being featured, and the on-site restaurant will be delivering food straight to your vehicle.

WALLER COUNTY, Texas — Bored binge-watching movies at home with the kids? How about a nice drive and maybe dinner?

Waller County’s Cane Island community is hosting a pop-up drive-in movie experience this weekend for some old-fashioned, double-feature fun.

And the best part is admission is FREE. It’s cars only, so pedestrians and bicycles are not allowed.

The Oaks Kitchen & Bar will be serving entrees, appetizers, cocktails, wine and beer for delivery right to your car during the show. Deliveries come complete with disposable napkins, utensils and trash bag which can be placed outside your car for staff to pick up after each movie. Call (281) 574-4144 to place your order. Credit cards and debit cards only.

Drive-in movie theaters across the country are seeing a boost in traffic as more and more people begin to practice social distancing. It’s old school, but it’s an appropriate alternative to the standard movie going experience.

In Hockley, residents have been riding to The Showboat Drive-In Theater for entertainment.

“They’re looking for something to do, and I think something that makes them feel a little normal in a time that’s completely abnormal," said Andrew Thomas with The Showboat Drive-In Theater.
