Thanks to the Todd Ingersoll family, greater Danbury area families have had the opportunity to enjoy a drive-in movie at the Ingersoll Auto Pop-Up Drive-In behind the Edmond Town Hall at 45 Main St. in Newtown.

Showing each night from Friday, Sept 11 through Thursday, Sept 17 (no show on 9/12), the classic movie, 'Footloose,' will be featured starring Kevin Bacon. Parking begins at 8 pm, and the film kicks off at 8:30. You must order your ticket(s) online at and keep in mind that only 42 carload tickets are available each night.

I still have vivid memories of my drive-in experiences as a teen back in the late '60s. Most of those memories revolve around my high school girlfriend, and in most cases, it involved fogged up windows and very little movie-watching.

Sorry, I got sidetracked for a minute, back to the Ingersoll Auto Pop-Up Drive-In. Showing each night from Friday, Sept 18 through Thursday, Sept 24, is 'Knives Out' starring Daniel Craig and Chris Evans, and it's rated PG-13.

Will there be snacks? Absolutely! You can order their Popcorn Special when you purchase your ticket online. It includes a jumbo popcorn, two bottles of water, and one small pack of M&M's. For all the info you'll need to know, click on
