Epic Theatres of West Volusia, a movie theater in Deltona, Florida is offering drive-in movies nightly. The entertainment option has been well-received by families looking for something fun to do while following social distancing guidelines outside of their homes.
DELTONA — As the sun was setting, Holly Pell and her family arrived at Epic Theatres of West Volusia and settled in for a movie.
They never left their pickup.
It was the New Smyrna Beach family’s second visit since the theater’s conversion to show movies drive-in style, a change prompted by the coronavirus pandemic, but they looked like pros, having set up an inflatable mattress in the truck bed with plenty of pillows, blankets, snacks and drinks.
“I thought it was pretty fun,” said Cypress Wood, Pell’s 14-year-old niece.
“And you can just lay under the stars,” Lydia Pell, Holly’s 12-year-old daughter said.
