Bangor Drive-In Announces Opening Date
The Bangor Drive-In is opening for the season soon.
The Bangor Drive-In has announced their opening date. According to a Facebook announcement, the season opening date is set for May 21. The drive-in will be open Fridays and Saturdays. In summer, the Drive-In is open for movies under the stars Wednesday through Sundays. The opening weekend film lineup has yet to be determined.
Last summer, with every concert on the schedule at the Darling's Waterfront Pavilion postponed or canceled due to COVID, the drive-in became an unlikely music venue. The theater hosted three virtual concerts featuring Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, and Metallica. So far, the Drive -In will host a virtual concert with Bon Jovi, May 22.
The Bangor Drive-In, located on Hammond Street in Hermon, reopened in 2015 after a nearly 30-year hiatus. The Drive-In initially opened on June 7, 1950, and closed in 1985 after a thirty-five year run.
