Northtowners and Niagara County fams, you’ve got a drive-in movie series in your neck of the woods this summer thanks to Artpark. Launched as a safe alternative to large gatherings, Artpark will present Drive-In films on three LED screens on Tuesday and Thursday nights beginning June 16.

In an adorable ode to their musical roots, Tuesday evenings will feature films made for music fans — concert films, biopics and other music-related content. The films shown on Thursdays will appeal to the whole family.


Artpark recently released the schedule for the first couple weeks, including The Last Waltz, Grease, Shine a Light, and School of Rock. Stay tuned for more films to be announced.

Tickets are $25 per vehicle (includes $8 admission & $17 concession credit) and will be sold in advance only both online at or and via phone 716-754-4375 (Mon-Fri, 10am-4pm) or one hour before movie showtime (subject to availability).


Artpark will space parked vehicles six feet apart. In order to ensure safety of all patrons and employees, Artpark and New York State Parks staff will be monitoring the parking lots to ensure vehicles are spaced properly and that patrons adhere to all safety protocols in place. All patrons must wear a face mask whenever they are outside their vehicles. For more info on the complete safety protocol Films will be shown in Parking Lots C & D (South 4th Street entrance).
