Aspen Snowmass in concert with its partners Audi and Bumble will host six drive-in movies in the Buttermilk parking lot beginning Saturday, July 11. Attendees will have the opportunity to watch classic, family-friendly movies while still abiding by social distancing guidelines and remaining in their vehicles.
The drive-in theater will feature a 40-foot wide screen and surround sound transmitted to cars via FM radio.
“Hosting Aspen High’s graduation highlighted again how special Buttermilk is as a venue, and people are looking for fun things to do these days,” says John Rigney, senior vice president of revenue. “This will be a welcome and entertaining outlet for the community, and perhaps the first drive-in experience for some kids and families.”
