SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Francisco is getting a pop-up drive-in theater this month.

FORT MASON FLIX will be playing movies starting September 18, the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture said Friday. To watch, people can buy a ticket online and drive to FMCAC’s campus through October 18 to catch one of their wide range of films on a 40′ by 20′ LED screen.

FMCAC said they’ll be playing family favorites, cult classics, blockbusters and arthouse cinema six days a week. Some special screenings throughout the month will benefit non-profit organizations.

Safety regulations include contactless check-in, limited tickets and regular restroom cleaning. FMCAC said people will have to wear masks when they’re outside of their cars.
