Just in time for spring break (and Godzilla vs Kong) Celebration Cinema is bringing back pop up drive-in movie theaters at their Grand Rapids North and Lansing locations.

The drive-ins are set up in the theater parking lots and giant shipping containers stacked on top of each other create the screens.

Emily Loeks, director of community affairs for Celebration Cinema, said in a release,

“Initially, we viewed Pop Up Drive Ins as a temporary measure, to enjoy until indoor movie-going became possible. We extended them until the snow fell in 2020 because they were so popular, and are now reopening them as the evenings get warmer and springtime movies are in greater abundance. They provide a different and fun option for moviegoers, with the benefit of open air and extra distancing.”

Fox 17 reports that movie-goers can watch from inside their cars, or set up camp outside.
Snacks and bathrooms are available inside the theater. Masks are required when entering the building.
Here are the movies that have been scheduled so far:


3/31-4/4 Godzilla Vs. Kong
4/2-4/8 Raya and the Last Dragon


Tickets can be purchased in advance at Celebration Cinema's website.
