Texas Theatre Converts Parking Lot into Temporary Drive-In

As movie theatres remain closed, one Texas theatre has converted its parking lot into a temporary drive-in. The Evo Entertainment multiplex in Schertz, Texas has managed to completely sell out every screening in their temporary drive-in.

The theatre was seen taking precautions to protect employees, and moviegoers were able to order food through an app built for the occasion. All payments were made online, so no cash could pass hands. When a food order was ready, an employee wearing gloves dropped the order off at the driver's side door.

“This is a difficult time for everyone, so we’ve made it our goal to find a way to spread positivity within our community while sharing in the responsibility of social distancing during the crisis,” Evo Entertainment Group CEO Mitchell Roberts said in a statement to Forbes.
The drive-in launched by showing 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'  and there were plans to show other movies including 'Top Gun'  and 'Grease'. The screenings were free and spots could be reserved, ahead of time. Showtimes started at dusk and were scheduled to finish at 10pm local time; the city has a curfew that comes into effect at that time.

Despite its success, Evo Entertainment has been forced to close its temporary drive-in, due to new shelter-in-place restrictions. The statement below has since been posted on their social media pages.
"Due to new shelter-in-place restrictions, we have been ordered by the city of Schertz to halt operation of the Evo Drive-in Experience.
We are immensely grateful to the amazing people of our community for their overwhelming support of this initiative to spread positivity and normalcy during these uncertain times, and look forward to once again providing an incredible entertainment experience here at Evo.
While we are no longer able to offer the Drive-In experience, we will continue to offer curbside and delivery service from our kitchens, as well as free grocery delivery from Evo Market.
Stay safe & healthy, Evo family.
We'll see you when this storm passes."
