Based on a successful summer season, Long Island event producer Starfish Junction has announced it will continue its pop-up drive-in movie series, Movie Lot, at the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove through the fall. The series has entertained over 4,000 cars since it launched in May.

“We’re working on a fantastic lineup for fall. We’ve had such a positive response to the summer series that we decided to extend the drive-in movies into the fall season. We’ve got some awesome movies coming for the next few weeks and we’re currently finalizing plans for a Halloween spooktacular weekend, with movies sure to appeal to both kids and adults,” said Lauren Powers, Senior Director at Starfish Junction. 

While drive-in theaters have been staging a comeback across the country, Starfish Junction has positioned itself as one of the leaders here on Long Island, owning the biggest pop-up drive-in screen, 52-feet, available locally. Future showings will include movies perfect for date nights, family fun nights, girl’s night out, sing-alongs, and classic films.   

There are a limited number of tickets available for each showing. Tickets are on sale now ($40 per carload for early shows, $30 per carload for late night shows) and must be purchased online in advance at the Movie Lot website to adhere to the promise of contactless processing.

Ticketholders are permitted to bring their own food and snacks to enjoy during the show. Attendees may also consider Smith Haven Mall restaurants for curbside pick up before filing into the lot for the movie.  Portable restrooms will be available for use and the showings will take place rain or shine. All ticket sales are final. For tickets and more information, visit
