Helping Others Stay Connected While Remaining Physically Distant by Hosting Drive-In Events
On January 1, 2020, if someone told you that in May you wouldn’t be allowed to go to a movie in a theater, would you have believed them? Would you have believed them when they said the only way you can go to the movies would be outside watching on a big LED screen from your car?
Our world has completely turned upside down in a matter of weeks. If you are in the event industry, your world turned upside down in a matter of minutes. Everyone is searching for new ways to stay connected while staying socially distant.
Magnolia Golf Group has developed a complete solution for outdoor community events while adhering to the social distancing guidelines.
On May 4, the BSA Atlanta Area Council hosted a drive-in movie to celebrate “May the Fourth” in style by showing The Rise of Skywalker to many Boy Scout Troops and Cub Scout Packs. Cars parked in every other parking space and movie-goers could watch from inside their car while listening through their car’s radio thanks to an FM transmitter. Others chose to “camp out” on the tailgate of their car for a true drive-in movie experience.
The familiar sound of Star Wars’ famous opening soundtrack played through the speakers and throughout the parking lot and as the movie played, all in attendance cheered and felt the sense of community they’ve been longing for over the past few weeks.
The Magnolia Golf Group looks forward to hosting more socially distant drive-in events in the community such as church services, HOA neighborhood events, and graduation ceremonies for those seniors looking for a memorable experience who otherwise would have missed their high school graduation entirely.
Our fleet of eight LED boards are available to rent for others looking to maintain a sense of normalcy while following all social distancing guidelines. To watch a brief video of Magnolia Golf Group’s drive-in movie, click this link.
Socializing and maintaining social distance is a desire on everyone’s mind right now. What have you done to stay socially distant while feeling mentally connected?
