OCALA, Fla. — A Central Florida drive-in movie theater is still open. You might be wondering how amid the coronavirus pandemic:
1. The Ocala Drive-In Theatre is staying open seven nights a week while we ride out this pandemic.
"You cannot be any safer here," said owner John Watzke, pointing out several changes that regulars will notice.
2. For instance, cars used to park 2 feet apart. They're now separated by 10 feet of netting.
The theater asks that you order online
3. Gone are the days (for now) when you could walk into the concessions store and order at the counter.
If you don't want to order online, the drive-in recently knocked out one of the doors to create an outdoor walk-up window on the east side of the building.
4. Another change is that staff is required to wear gloves and face masks. When your food is delivered to your car, it will arrive covered and only you are allowed to pick it up off the tray to put in your car.
5. In addition to movies showing seven nights a week, church services happen every Tuesday and Wednesday at the Ocala Drive-In.
