Free drive-in movie nights will occur Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. and 24 at 7 p.m., showing the 2019 version of "The Addams Family" at the MOT Youth Football and Cheer field at 213 Silver Lake Road in Middletown. Cars will be ushered in starting one hour before showtime.

The community event will feature substance prevention and safety advertisements before the screening. The drive-in movie is sponsored by Southern New Castle County Communities Coalition (SN4C), Middletown Police Department, MOT Youth Football and Cheer and the town of Middletown.

Tamson Livanov, prevention coordinator at SN4C, said the night is a prevention-based activity because of the sponsors, but it’s meant to be just a safe activity for families.

The event will be limited to 60 cars each night, so registration will be available on Eventbrite at www.eventbrite.com/e/a-spooktacular-night-at-the-drive-in-movies-the-addams-family-2019-tickets-122829033947.

Livanov said they will take cars that don't have a ticket from Eventbrite as long as they haven’t reached capacity, but people are encouraged to secure a spot ahead of time.

Vehicles will be spaced a minimum of 12 feet apart. Attendees are allowed to put chairs,

blankets and other items on the passenger side of the vehicle only.
