If you’ve used Google today (which is kind of like saying “If you've breathed oxygen today...”), you know June 6 marks the anniversary of the first drive-in movie theater opening. The Camden, N.J. drive-in first opened on this day in 1933, when guests paid 25 cents per person and per car to see Wife Beware.
Drive-ins diminish every summer nowadays, but Cincinnati is lucky to have a few nearby. Celebrate Drive-In Day at Starlite Drive-In in Amelia, which screens Men In Black 3 tonight at 9:10 p.m. or Hamilton’s Holiday Auto Theatre, which shows MIB3 at 9:15 p.m. and Dark Shadows at 11:25 p.m. Go recreate a Grease scene or something.
The Fringe Festival keeps rollin’ tonight. We’ve got the series schedule and performance reviews here. After the shows, swing by Know Theatre for its Fringe Bar Series. Each night following Fringe, around 10:30 p.m., actors, volunteers, audience members and staff gather at Know's bar for Channel Fringe Hard-Hitting Action News Update, drinks and fun. Tonight is Segway night. Get down like George Jetson!
It’s a nice, cool night for some outdoor entertainment and there are lots of free, weekly Wednesday events to choose from.
Party in the Park continues at Yeatman’s Cove 5-10 p.m. tonight with The Menus. Do your drinking early in the evening to conserve cash — save two bucks on beer, wine and cocktails from 5-6:30 p.m.
Clifton Cultural Arts Center kicks off its Wednesdays on the Green series tonight as well. Live music, dancing, kids activities and onsite grub from Habanero and Streetpops await! The Comet Bluegrass Allstars perform at 7 p.m.
And you can let your dreads hang free during Fountain Square’s Reggae Wednesday. Chill downtown each week with Caribbean rhythms, drinks and food from vendors. Tonight, Andy Shaw performs.
