Starting in early October, Old Town in Kissimmee will be celebrating the Halloween season with some retro entertainment that's been coming back into vogue this year: drive-in movies.

Every Sunday night in October, Old Town will be showing a quartet of mostly family-friendly yet spooky – the opening sequence of Wes Craven's meta-slasher film Scream still makes us jump – drive-in movies in their big ol' parking lot.

The full schedule of the series is as follows:

October 4 - Beetlejuice
October 11 - The Nightmare Before Christmas
October 18 - Scream
October 25 - Hocus Pocus

With the majority of the usual local Halloween events called off this year, these drive-in movies might just combine social distancing needs with  seasonal kicks in a way that will leave everyone happy.

Parking will be $10 per vehicle and the films are first-come, first-served with limited capacity available. Follow the Facebook event pages to keep up with the latest details.
