The Canby Drive In is hosting movies on the big screen during Labor Day weekend. The Clackamas County Fairgrounds is being transformed into an old school drive in with a 60-foot movie screen for weekenders to enjoy not one, but two films.
On September 4, 5 and 6, the drive in will show The Avengers, the 2012 Marvel Studios blockbuster, and The New Mutants, final installment of the X-Men movie series.
The show starts at 8 p.m. Gates should open at 6:30 p.m. Details are scarce on the event page, so I am assuming based on past event hours that this will be the time when gates open. For the last event, early birds were asked to line up in the blue parking lot before accessing the drive in area.
Tickets are $25 per car, making this the cheapest drive in experience I’ve seen in the Portland metro this summer. This ticket price includes both movies for the double feature event. The online ticketing page does include at $1.50 booking fee. If you’d prefer to buy your tickets in person, they can be purchased at the Canby Cinema 8.
Since there is one ticket price available, it appears that vehicle spaces will be on a first come, first serve basis. If you want a space near the front, plan on getting there early.
The Clackamas County Fairgrounds is located at 694 NE 4th Ave. in Canby.
