A special media and VIP night was held on July 9 at the Royalmount Drive-In Event Theatre. Guests got the chance to experience a long lost summer tradition of watching a movie in the comfort of their own vehicle (with plenty of COVID-19 safety measures and social distancing).
The evening began with a live concert by local singer Shahara, a movie trivia quiz, followed by a screening of the hit 2000 movie Almost Famous starring Kate Hudson and Billy Crudup. Adam Bultz and Lorne Levitt, the duo who behind the creation of the venue, addressed the audience prior to the movie, stating that a schedule of live events have been booked at the Royalmount through this November.
