CONKLIN (WBNG) — Dublin’s Adventure Resort in Conklin is known for its outdoor, family-fun activities like mini-golf and bocce ball. With many summer activities canceled or postponed, a local drive-in theater is a good option for people to get out of their homes safely. Staff came up with the idea to add the drive-in last summer, but it never took off. Now this year, the timing was right. Movies take place every Friday and Saturday night and hope to run through October. For a look at the full schedule, head to the Dublin’s Adventure Resort Facebook Page. Health and safety precautions are in place. Now, it’s adding another attraction to its list — a drive-in movie theater. “We just started with a 15-foot screen and then realized this year post-COVID that wasn’t going to be enough. So now we have the 40-foot screen. We’re fully licensed, we own all of our own equipment. We’re in it for the long haul, not just a few shows like these other ones are doing,” said co-owner Steve Mower. Vehicles are appropriately distanced from each other, and when you are not in your car or lawn chair, you must be wearing a mask.
