Back in the summer of 1967 there were fourteen drive-in movie theaters in Rhode Island, but for the past nineteen summers the Rustic Drive-In on Route 146 has been the last holdout. Their double feature schedules are dictated by the film studios, which can lead to some odd combinations, but this week it’s the new Ghostbusters playing alongside Star Trek Beyond. (Ahoy, nerds!) Idris Elba plays the villain in the Star Trek movie, wearing a rubber suit and running around a green screen with his voice disguised. It’s probably not his most memorable role.
The Drive In is $27 per carload, so if four of you go the movies come out to $3.37 per person per movie. That’s a steal! The movies start at 8:45 but the gates open at 6.
