Drive-in theater comes to downtown parking garage

Friday, August 21, 2020 by Chad Swiatecki

The Downtown Austin Alliance Foundation has partnered with Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In Theater to stage a downtown drive-in theater on the roof of the state parking garage at Third and San Antonio streets. The theater will operate from Aug. 27 through at least the end of October, with regular showings on Wednesdays and Fridays as well as special select dates. The Downtown Alliance will provide additional programming for the events, with artists, musicians, storytellers and other performing arts organizations on tap. Downtown restaurants and nearby businesses will help promote deliveries of meals and other purchases to theater patrons. Blue Starlite has developed an entirely contact-free experience because of the health concerns from Covid-19, with guests required to stay in their vehicles at all times other than for restroom visits while wearing a face mask. Information on showings is available at
