Catch a drive-in movie
EVO Entertainment Group is taking an old-school approach to social distancing mandates by opening a new drive-in alternative. Guests can pull up to the parking lot of the temporarily closed location in Schertz and watch a free film projected on the exterior wall of the theater. Tickets and showtimes are available through the EVO app, and all screenings will end ahead of the city’s 10 pm curfew. To learn about future screenings happening seven nights a week, visit evodrivein.com.
