Skyline Drive-In NYC  (1 oak St.), Greenpoint’s new East River waterfront drive-in cinema has launched ticket sales for screenings of movies scheduled through July 2nd.

The drive-in held a test-run at the end of May and is now open to the public. Screenings through Sunday include “Footloose” (6/17), “Dreamgirls” (6/18), “Anchorman” (6/19), “Grease” (6/20) and “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (6/21).

Tickets are priced at $54.99 per vehicle for up to seven passengers and $34.99 for motorcycles, price points which drew criticism for the lack of more affordable options from dozens of commenters on the Greenpointers Instagram announcement; commenters on the post also had issue with the incentivizing of packing seven people into one vehicle as social distancing guidelines remain in effect. Skyline Drive-in had previously announced that a pedestrian ticket option is in the works.

New York City is in the Phase 1 reopening stage following the coronavirus crisis, which in March caused the temporary closure of all businesses deemed non-essential. Phase 4 is when in-door movie screenings can resume, but first NYC must achieve Phase 2 and 3 status; Phase 2 is set to start on June 22nd in NYC.
