The Remarkable Theater — the COVID pop-up that has evolved into one of Westport’s entertainment institutions — returns for a 3rd season this month.
The Imperial Avenue drive-in is more than just a way to watch movies on a screen bigger than your phone (or even your own big TV screen).
It’s a community event. It’s a partnership with non-profits. And it’s a way to provide meaningful employment for people with disabilities.
The Remarkable is as Westport-oriented as it gets. And its first films of 2022 have special connections to our town.
The opening night screening — a joint venture with the Westport Library — is “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (Friday, April 29; $50 per car).
The film was written by Shonda Rhimes. On June 1, she’s the “Booked for the Evening” honoree at the Library, a few steps away from the drive-in.
The next day (Saturday, April 30), the Remarkable screens “The Sting,” with longtime area residents Paul New Man and Robert Redford.
The screening is co-sponsored by the Drew Freidman Foundation in support of CLASP Homes, which provides support for people with autism and developmental disabilities.
To honor Westporters Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, The Remarkable is offering tickets at half price ($25 per car).
Both movies begin at 7:30 p.m. Gates open at 6:30, for tailgating.
