CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Concrete Street Amphitheater has struggled during the pandemic with not being able to put on concerts. Now they are changing the way they do things to provide a safe and fun experience for families by providing a drive-in movie theater experience.

General manager Mark Schaberg feels like the drive-in movie theater concept is an experience that reaches all generations.

They are letting in 100 cars per show and the cars will be spaced out for social distancing purposes.

Folks will stay in their cars so there is no sitting in lounge chairs outside of your vehicle.

For food and beverages, they will have carhops that you can order through using the QR code on their web ordering system and the food will be brought to you.

Masks don’t need to be worn in the car only when you need to go to the bathroom where they have added extra safety measures.

“What we are going to do is if people need to go to the restroom, they will be chaperoned to the restroom where they will go directly there and go back to their vehicle,” said General Manager Mark Schaberg

Tickets range from $40 to $50 per vehicle. But, that includes a $20 dollar food and beverage voucher.

“Just trying to provide more creative opportunities that are safe for those that want to really remain uh socially distant and uh that is something that we are trying to do, ” said Schaberg.

They will be having shows starting today and tomorrow and they will continue to do shows for the next four weeks. Doors open up at 8 pm and there will be music and fun trivia games until the movie starts at 9 pm.
