ACM Guest Services Manager Patricia Borgardt said that it’s one of her passion projects to run the summer drive-in movies, selecting popular family fun movies and keeping an eye out for what’s popular and appeals to adults and kids.
“Usually we have an online community vote for one of the movies, but with the general uncertainty of whether we could hold our drive-ins this year, we didn’t do that. Last year, ‘Bumblebee’ was just shy of ‘Captain Marvel’ in audience selection, so it was a natural for this year,” she said.
Since September weather can often be dicey for outdoor movie equipment, doesn’t plan to have another drive-in this season, “but I’m looking into having some ‘date night’ movies in our Showcase Gallery once we can reopen,” Borgardt said. “We certainly look forward to having them, without restrictions, next year and beyond. We’re brainstorming all kinds of events to hold once we’re allowed to open. You can be sure that we’ll open our doors with a terrific member event and a hearty welcome to our visitors.”
Keep looking to ACM’s social media and website (www.AmericasCarMuseum.org) for upcoming events and special online access for in-depth visits with the museum’s cars and collectors.
As Borgardt said, “We can’t wait to welcome back our visitors and volunteers. Until then, please be well and consider becoming a member right now and help us ‘keep the lights on.’”
