Join us for Family Drive-In Movie Night with a spooky twist…
Welcome to the ticket registration page for the Hocus Pocus drive-in movie! The Avon Grove Library and Penn Township are thrilled that we can keep offering these free, fun and safe events to our community. With the pandemic threat still prevalent, our goal was to host these events until, at least, October and if we have the means, possibly until the end of the year. Our ultimate hope is that by next summer we will be able to offer movies in the township park once again. Until then, we hope you enjoy the drive-ins.
The drive-in events were created for the community by the community. There have been many organizations and businesses involved in making them possible, the complete list of sponsors is at the bottom of this page. With all that said, we hope you enjoy our next movie, Hocus Pocus (Rated PG).
Here’s how the night will work:
Register: This movie is FREE, however we still need you to register. Once you register, please either print or keep your “ticket” handy on your phone. Spots are limited and we are asking you to register in advance, so that we can monitor the amount of people that are on site. To keep crowd size manageable, vehicles are limited to no more than six passengers per vehicle. No need to register each passenger – 1 ticket per car.
Movie Date/Rain Date: This movie night will be Saturday, October 17th. Please be aware that outdoor movies are extremely weather sensitive. In the case of inclement weather we will need to move to a rain date. The rain date is TBD, but once it is established all attendees will be informed. Should we end up needing to move to a rain date, we will inform all ticket holders via the email you made your reservation with.
Time: We will open parking at 5 p.m. The movie will begin at sunset, we are roughly estimating 6:30 p.m. We suggest you arrive early to get settled into a parking spot and grab your pre-movie snacks.
Location: The movies are being held at the Penn Township Sports Park. Physical address is 355 N. Jennersville Road, West Grove, PA 19390. This is off of Route 796, across from Sweet Peas Florist.
Parking: When you arrive, please have your “ticket” handy. We will ask to see it. Our parking crew will direct you into the field where parking spots are marked. You will be able to choose your parking spot, however we reserve the right to ask you to move to a different spot should it interfere with the screen view for others. If you are planning to enjoy the movie from the trunk of your car, please ensure that your trunk does not lift above the roof. Again, this is for viewing purposes. Please ensure that the vehicle you are in has an FM radio, as that is how the movie’s sound will be transmitted.
Safety & Food Trucks: It’s a movie, so of course we need to have refreshments. 22 BBQ will be serving up some delicious BBQ and Sweet Magnolia Bakery Truck will have your pre-movie sweets. Kona Ice of Southern Chester County will be handing out a limited supply of free ice, courtesy of our community partners. Masks and face coverings are required when away from your vehicle, especially when you are getting food. When waiting in a food line, distance yourself as best you can.
We will have porta-potties on site available for you to use.
Spooky Activities: Happy Halloween! Participate in our pumpkin painting contest, open to all ages. Email [email protected] to register. If painting isn’t your thing, be sure to vote for your favorite pumpkins before the movie. Costumes aren’t required at this event, but we’d love to see them! You can even strike a pose in front of our selfie booth. Play some “spooky” games, win prizes and more! Our Hometown Heroes merchandise will also be available for purchase again. Proceeds to benefit the PA State Police’s Camp Cadet and Sunny Day Camp programs.
