"You're gonna need a bigger … car."

Word comes via Mount Dora Buzz that the drive-in movie trend is arriving in Mount Dora this very week. Epic Theatres at Mount Dora is launching a drive-in movie series in their parking lot that focuses heavily on classic titles. Mount Dora's Epic now joins movie theaters in Clermont and West Volusia that have already started their own drive-in screenings.

It all starts tonight, Thursday, May 21, with a double feature of Jaws and Back to the Future.
