Chesapeake Family Movie Park
Want to give your kids a nostalgic experience while on vacation? Owner of the Chesapeake Family Movie Park, Bobby Weeks, has built a 40 foot screen and parking area to provide families with just that!
“Because of the pandemic, and what we got here is called social distancing at its best. You sit in the car with your family and enjoy a nice movie. We do have a concession stand out here and we only sell prepackaged food,” said Tim Lemon, a spokesman for the new business. “My parents used to hide us in the trunks underneath covers so people wouldn’t see us in the car. So if you looked in the back of the truck you would have found me back there. We also have the FM transmitter. The FM transmitter means you can take and listen to the movie right in your car just turn it to our station, which is 89.7 and you can hear the whole movie,” he said.
Prices are $30 per car, so there is no need to hide people under covers any longer! Military, first responders, and senior citizens get $5 off for their vehicle. The lot currently holds 100 vehicles and Wonder Woman will be playing tonight and Saturday night. Gates open at 6:30 and the movie starts at 7:45! The movie park is 30 miles from Sandbridge and located at 3064 Yadkin Road in Chesapeake.
