Drive-in movie season kicks off: Owners hope for less summer rain than last year

In the spring, many drive-in theaters open this weekend. After suffering through a rainy summer last year, their owners are crossing their fingers for better weather this year.

“We already know we have a great film schedule this summer with films like this Hate me 4, Reverse 2 And Deadpool & Wolverine. We have to hope for good weather!'' says Kevin Patenaut, co-owner of Ciné-Parc St-Hilaire.

Last year, the province's drive-in theaters started their season strong, especially thanks to the success of the family film. Awesome Mario Bros, released in early spring. But when summer came, Mother Nature came to spoil the party on several occasions.

“In July, we had three or four weekends of rain. These are obviously not ideal conditions for us,” laments Kevin Patenaut.

Like last year, Ciné-Parc St-Hilaire will be the first in the province to resume its operations in mid-April. This weekend, the doors of the Saint-Eustache and Orford drive-in theaters will reopen. Chandler (on Caspian) and Belle Neige (on Laurentian) will follow in late May.
