(Mankato, MN) – For the first time in 30-years, residents in the Mankato area can head out to a drive-in movie.
On Friday night, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” will be screened in the University Parking Lot 20, at the corner of Stadium Road and Warren Street.
The movie is free and open to the public. Attendees may enter the lot with their vehicles beginning at 8 pm. The movie will start at 9.
According to Minnesota State Mankato’s Student Events Team, there has not been an outdoor drive-in movie shown in the Mankato area since the Kato Twin Star Drive-In closed in 1988.
There are just six remaining drive-in theaters in Minnesota.
They are the Elko Drive-in in Elko Market, Vali-Hi Drive-in in Lake Elmo, Starlite Drive-in 5 in Litchfield, Long Drive-in Theater in Long Prairie, Verne Drive-in in Luverne and Sky-Vu Drive-in in Warren.
