The Grand Announces Return of Drive-In Movies at Bellevue State Park

Films include Chicago, DreamGirls, Rocketman, Newsies, and Mary Poppins Returns.

After eight sold out movies last fall, The Grand is thrilled to announce the return of their Drive-In Cinema at Bellevue State Park. The series will begin on May 1 with five movie musicals announced:

May 1: Chicago: The Musical

(starring Richard Gere, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Renee Zellweger)

May 22: Dreamgirls: The Musical

"After the overwhelming success of last fall's drive-in series, we are thrilled to continue these safe outdoor options for our patrons. We hope this series of movie musicals in a drive-in setting continues to appeal to the public, especially families, and would also connect to our Broadway tradition at The Playhouse."

The Playhouse on Rodney Square, housed inside the historic DuPont building, is home the country's longest continuously operating Broadway touring stop (operating since 1913). With over 2,000 Broadway in Wilmington subscribers, the series hosts more than 7 musicals per year for the Broadway novice up to the Broadway buff.

"By tipping our hat to the strong desire for Broadway entertainment in the City, we hope to continue our tradition of presenting the finest in Broadway musicals - now on the big screen" says Fields.

Tickets are on sale NOW and are $15 per person (up to four people per car), plus fees. Children under 12 are FREE. They are available online only at www.TheGrandWilmington.org. The Grand's in-person and phone box offices are currently closed.
