A Drive-In Theater?

Yes!

On July 16, the Camden International Film Festival (CIFF) revived the magic of a drive-in theater at 40 West Street in Rockport – the old Rockport Elementary School site. This has continued to serve as a venue for community screenings throughout the summer and will be our main venue for CIFF 2020 (October 1-12). Building a drive-in theater is complicated and expensive, but with an outpouring of support from our community, we have finished the main pieces of this project, all the while remaining true to our mission of supporting filmmakers, amplifying the voices of nonfiction storytellers at this moment of inflection, and giving back to the community with our programs.

There has never been a better time to reinvent the drive-in theater. We feel that this is exactly what we need right now: a safe way to gather in celebration of storytelling.

The lighthouse tower at the Shotwell houses a new Digital Cinema Package (DCP) laser projector for image quality that will amaze viewers from every spot on the site. We are incredibly grateful for the support we received for this project, from the donation of the DCP, to gifts that covered construction costs, to the hundreds of volunteer hours that went into making it happen. Thank you!
