A drive-in movie theatre is coming to the University of Victoria.

For three nights this week, Legacy Drive-In Cinema will transform the University of Victoria’s parking lot into a drive-in movie theatre, where they will be screening Hook (June 4), The Life Aquatic (June 5) and The Breakfast Club (June 6).

Films will be projected on a 40-foot screen at UVic’s parking lot 10, where capacity will be limited to 50 vehicles in order to comply with the provincial health officer’s orders around mass gathering events.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to support our students and look forward to working with Legacy Drive-In Cinema,” Jane Potentier, UVic’s associate vice president of alumni and development, said in a media release. “This is a great example of entrepreneurship meeting community need during the COVID crisis. We welcome people to enjoy this family entertainment on our campus in a safe and friendly environment.”

Movies will start at 9:30 p.m. and tickets are $30 per parking space, with $5 of every ticket going to fund UVic student bursaries.

Snacks can be ordered in advance from local vendors such as Bilston Creek Farm and Imagine Ice Cream, and will be delivered to people’s vehicles.

Legacy Drive-In Cinema says the three showings this week is a “pilot project to see what appetite the Greater Victoria” has for outdoor movies and more screenings can be expected throughout the summer if the pilot is successful.
