World UFO Day was July 2, and the Kokomo Theatre in Longview, Texas is celebrating in a big way all month long! Throughout the month, sci-fi movie favorites will play on a huge open-air screen. But, this isn’t your traditional drive-in theatre. Instead of sitting in a car, viewers are asked to bring lawn chairs to watch the film from. Sit back and comfortably enjoy a classic galactic movie from one of the largest outdoor screens around. The movie schedule includes:

  • Forbidden Planet – July 2 and 4
  • The Thing from Another World – July 9 and 11
  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers – July 16 and 18
  • The Day the Earth Stood Still – July 23 and 25

Before the flick begins, audience-goers will be entertained with a live concert by the Queen of Swing, Kelli Grant. Hear hit tunes from the 50s and 60s including rock ‘n’ roll and swing songs everyone can clap, dance, and sing along to. Grant’s award-winning career includes three number one chart hits and numerous awards. All of her shows are completely live — no pre-recorded tracks, karaoke, or recorded keyboard sounds are used. Sit back and listen to a truly talented artist performing music the whole family will love!

And don’t worry about getting hungry during the event — a snack bar filled with goodies is at your fingertips! From hotdogs and Frito pie to candy, popcorn, chips, and floats, it has everything you want in a vintage style theatre.
