A St. Augustine movie theater is starting a drive-in experience to maintain social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.
With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting movie theaters along the First Coast, one in particular is getting creative.
Moviegoers will soon be able to enjoy a fun-filled night under the stars at a drive-in movie experience in St. Augustine.
Epic Theatres of St. Augustine doesn't have an opening date yet, but the company said in a Facebook post that a drive-in setup is currently being installed in the theater parking lot.
The movies will be projected on the west wall of the theatre building, with the theatre planning to show two show features per night.

The theater says the first showing is at dusk and the other will start 30 minutes after the first one ends.
"Because we have a limited number of parking spaces we charge based on the carload...it does not matter how many people are in your car the price is the same," said the company in the Facebook post. "The price is $20 per carload per show individually, or you can do both shows for $30."
The sound will be transmitted through cars’ FM radio.
The theater said the refreshment stand will be open for popcorn.
Epic Theatres began a similar drive-in plan last month in Volusia County.
