Drive-In Movie Series Partners
The time is the 1960s, and singers Effie (Jennifer Hudson), Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose), and Deena (Beyoncé Knowles) are about to find out just what it’s like to have their wildest dreams come true. Discovered at a local talent show by ambitious manager Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), the trio known as “the Dreamettes” is soon offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of opening for popular singer James “Thunder” Early (Eddie Murphy). Subsequently molded into an unstoppable hit machine by Taylor and propelled into the spotlight as “the Dreams,” the girls quickly find their bid for the big time taking priority over personal friendship as Taylor edges out the ultra-talented Effie so that the more beautiful Deena can become the face of the group. Now, as the crossover act continues to dominate the airwaves, the small-town girls with big-city dreams slowly begin to realize that the true cost of fame may be higher than any of them ever anticipated.
Lost Summer Drive-In Movie Series
We are bringing back the fun of drive-in movies while maintaining safe, social distancing. We are so excited to offer drive-in movie experiences at two locations – on Fridays and Saturdays at the lot shared by Blue Mermaid/Tributary Brewing Company in Kittery, Maine, and on Mondays at the beautiful location of our sponsor, Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, at Pease International Tradeport.

Weekly Non-Profit Partner
Because the pandemic has challenged the community as a whole, each week Prescott Park Arts Festival will partner with another local non-profit to select some of the films and share a portion of the net proceeds. Your attendance will help not one, but two organizations!
Following Prescott Park Art Festival’s commitment to accessibility, the drive-in series is a suggested donation of $25 per car. These funds will support the cost of the series and support the festival during the challenges and restrictions of COVID-19. If that is cost-prohibitive, there is a Donate What You Can option.
Advance reservation is required.
