Your new Drive-in will feature classic movies and other features that you can enjoy from the comfort of your car.  Also, we will have a limited amount of space for outside viewing.  We are very respectful of our neighbors and in doing so we do not be using speakers, but rather radio broadcasting of the show on an unused FM frequency. So, you can listen on your car radio or on a portable radio.

Humankind is living in a new world, the world of Covid-19 Chaos, the 2020 version of the Twilight Zone. We all miss gathering together, gathering to enjoy a meal or drink, gathering in our churches, gathering to enjoy a concert or play. The Highlands Performing Arts Center wants to bring the community together to gather and enjoy each other’s company once again, We explored different options; one option that other performing arts centers tried is a drive-in theater. Having a drive-in theater enabled us to show the Great Art on Screen documentaries, movies from the Playhouse, special pre-recorded live pop concerts, church services, open mic night, lectures, private parties, sport events and so much more, all viewed safely from your car. Use your imagination and bring us suggestions.
