SeaWorld dipped their toes in the drive-in movie waters earlier in July, and apparently the temperature was just right. The theme park is expanding their Flicks and Fireworks event into a weekly series, running on into the first weekend of September.

On selected weekend nights through Sept. 5-6, the park will be screening drive-in films – skewing more toward 1980s/1990s titles – in their parking lot, with a fireworks show and some local food trucks providing concessions as part of the deal.

The schedule as announced so far is:

Friday, July 31 - Trolls
Saturday, Aug. 1 - Jurassic Park
Friday, Aug. 7 - Men in Black
Saturday, Aug. 8 - Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Friday, Aug. 14 - Footloose
Saturday, Aug. 15 - Despicable Me
Saturday, Sept. 5 - Grease

More screenings for August TBA.

Flicks and Fireworks events kick off with a fireworks show after the audience for the evening is parked and settled in. The movie screening follows that directly.

Tickets can be purchased for the events here. Admission per car is $50.
