The Rome Community Theater has two more Drive In movies for you to check out in the upcoming two weeks.

The city of Rome was the home to a drive in theater at one point. Many remember it, and many enjoyed it. That was the concept that the Rome Community Theater used to launch these drive in movie nights.

“The pandemic has created such a void of live entertainment, and since performing on stage is still in the future, we wanted to find some way to include our loyal patrons and introduce Rome Community Theater to perhaps a new audience,” said Barbara Seaton, theater board president. “Rome used to have a drive-in movie theater, and many people remember the fun of it.”
