The Promenade, located at Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and north Scottsdale Road will host their Moonlit Drive-In Movie series this April each Saturday Night with festivities kicking off at 7 p.m. in front of Old Navy, within the shopping center’s parking lot.

The Promenade launched this free movie series last spring and by popular demand will bring it back, according to a press release.  Upcoming family friendly flicks include:

  • April 16 – Kung Fu Panda 3
  • April 23 – Inside Out
  • April 30 – Alvin & The Chipmunks

Each film will start at 7:30 p.m. and be shown on a 32-foot inflatable screen. Viewers are welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets or other portable seating options. Many choose to watch the film from their cars and take advantage of the authentic “drive-in” feeling.

Moviegoers will have the opportunity to sample and/or purchase food and drink from local vendors. A balloon twister/face painter will be on site offering free balloon animals and face painting and other contests, prizes and activities are planned.

“The response to our drive-in movie series was so positive last year—we just knew we had to bring it back and we look forward to another successful event series,” stated Promenade Marketing Director Kelly Corbet, in the release.

The Scottsdale Promenade is also pursuing a non-profit partnership for the Moonlit Drive-In Movie series, according to the release.
