SAN ANTONIO – A drive-in movie theater with on-site food trucks is slated to open at Brooks City Base as more people hang outdoors due to the pandemic.

The Mission Outdoor Theater will have its opening day on Sept. 4, according to a news release. It’s the creation of Electric Fiesta, which hosted the city’s first-ever EDM drive-in in June.

The theater will have two screens that can fit 130 vehicles each. Admission will start at $27 per vehicle, and the allowed number of people per party depends on the size of the vehicle, the release states.
