Movies Under The Stars

The neighbors and partners from Persimmon Ridge, Norton Commons and Lake Forest had a fun and memorable experience watching movies outdoors. The Sauerbeck Drive-In provided tickets for all the publications during their Summer Retro Wednesday nights. The first movie was "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" a classic film based on Roald Dahl's beloved children's book. It’s filled with whimsical characters and a magical world of chocolate and candy. On the other hand, the second movie, "Sixteen Candles" is a coming-of-age romantic comedy that has become a cult classic, capturing the trials and tribulations of teenage life and love.

The combination of these two films offered a diverse range of entertainment for both kids and adults. Maria Mears, Editor of Stroll NoCo, and Liz Hack, Owner is Stroll Persimmon Ridge, were on hand to greet neighbors and business partners to hand out Stroll swag and play games with the neighbors. We had many folks come by the Stroll table to thank us for hosting the Drive-In experience. Michelle Fell owner Ballou Party Planning and Persimmon Ridge resident added a special touch to the event. The Stroll event stood out to the crowd because of the gorgeous oversized balloon décor of a popcorn box with popcorn flowing out of it. Michelle’s creation made the experience feel so special.

The Sauerbeck Drive-in events have a unique charm, providing the opportunity to enjoy movies under the stars with the comfort of being in your own vehicle or setting up lawn chairs outside. Stephen Sauerbeck, owner of the drive-in, will have movies and special public events going from now til late November. Check out their website and Facebook page for more information about their upcoming events. Be on the look out for their Halloween event that is family friendly.
