A remarkable new era begins Friday.
That’s when the Remarkable Theater opens its summer drive-in series, at the Imperial Avenue parking lot. (The same site as the Westport Farmers’ Market.)
It’s a win-win. The theater offers employment to people with disabilities, while providing safe, socially distant entertainment for the town.
Two classic films are on tap this weekend: “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” on Friday; “Caddyshack” Saturday.
Opening night is a fundraiser for the Westport Woman’s Club — the Imperial parking lot’s next door neighbor. With no Yankee Doodle Fair this year due to COVID-19, this is a great way to support their food closet.
Tickets for Friday’s fundraiser are $100 per car. Other shows are $50 per car.
Tickets go on sale at 3 p.m. today. Click here to reserve a spot.

(The screenings are made possible with the financial support of the Connecticut Department of Developmental Disabilities and the ARTHA Foundation, and help from the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce and Westport Library.)
