  • The college will host a free drive-in movie for the community Friday.
  • First "Finding Dory" will be shown, then "Captain America: Civil War."

Community members are invited to Penn State York's campus for a free drive-in movie Friday. The college will show "Finding Dory" and "Captain America: Civil War."


The evening will begin at 7:30 p.m. with "Finding Dory," a family-friendly choice for younger children. Afterward, mature audiences can stick around to watch "Captain America: Civil War," which will begin at approximately 9:30 p.m. For audience members who only want to see "Finding Dory," there will be an intermission between movies.

People may begin parking in the lower parking lot area behind the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center starting at 6:30 p.m.

Free popcorn will be offered while supplies last. The event is sponsored by the University Programming Board, which is selling other drinks and snacks in a partnership with the Penn State York THON, a charity organization and event that donates all proceeds to the fight against pediatric cancer. THON's fundraising season begins the same night as the movie.

People can sit in their cars and listen to the movie through the production company's tuner system or sit outside their cars at the front of the parking lot. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket if they plan to sit outdoors. In the event of rain, the movies will be rescheduled in October.
