With theaters across the United States closed due to COVID-19, film lovers have been turning to an old staple of cinema, drive-ins. They’ve been popping up all over the country. However, that still means leaving your house, which isn’t always the safest option. But now Blue Bunny is offering an opportunity to host your own outdoor viewing party without having to travel past your front lawn. Lucky winners will get a personal visit from Blue Bunny‘s “IceScreen” truck, for a night of cinema and ice cream from the comfort of your driveway.
Instead of a drive-in they’re offering a drive-up.
Blue Bunny has transformed its ice cream truck, still fully loaded with frozen treats, into a mobile theater. They attached an 11×6-foot HD screen to the outside of the truck, and they will be taking it right to the homes of contest winners during the next month. The “IceScreen” truck will be appearing in:
- Denver: Aug. 5 to 9
- Chicago: Aug. 12 to 16
- Cincinnati: Aug. 19 to 23
- St. Louis: Aug. 26 to 30
- Le Mars: Sept. 1 to 4
All you have to do to win is sign up for the contest at Funlightenment.com. It’s free to enter, but you must be at least 18 years old and have “authorized access to a secure location or driveway that is not a public space and located in or within 25 miles outside the city limits” of the five spots it’s traveling to.
And that’s one thing the “IceScreen” truck has over even regular theaters—you won’t have to miss any part of the movie to get more snacks. That and you won’t have to put on shoes either.
