Time is running out for the 2014 season! Only three more weekends left to view a double feature at Becky's for 2014!

We still have a lot of things happening this year. We just signed up to participate in the Northampton Jack Frost Parade on Thursday, October 23rd. We also hope to be in the Slatington/Walnutport Halloween Parade on Saturday, October 25th. Don't miss our wonderful float with the help of artist, Stephen Shuey's work of eight famous movie cars parked at the drive in.

September 24th would have been our father's 105th birthday. He left us 27 years ago in April, but his spirit and accomplishments are still with us. We are lucky kids to have had him for our dad and pappy.

On Friday, September 26th, Screen 1 will be closed to the general public because we are holding our 4th Annual North Valley District Cub Scout Camp Out. The gates open at 6 pm, so all the scouts and families can set up their tents before the double features begin. The double features begin with "The Boxtrolls" at 8:00 pm, followed by "Dolphin Tales 2" at 9:55. Both movies are rated PG. Each scout will receive a special Becky's Drive In patch designed by projectionist, Chris Deppe, who just happened to be a cub scout himself back in the 1980's. There will be special rides for the evening. We are renting a large inflatable play land from Metz Amusements, along with our regular moon bounce and trackless fire engine rides.

Showing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 26th, 27th, and 28th:
Screen 1 (Closed to general public on Friday):
8:05 pm - "The Boxtrolls" - PG
9:55 pm - "Dolphin Tale 2" - PG
Screen 2:
8:00 pm - "The Maze Runner" - rated PG13
10:15 pm - "Planet of the Apes 2014" - rated PG13

On Sunday, October 5th will be our 27th Annual Lehigh Township Benefit Festival & Car Show to benefit Dream Come True of the Blue Ridge Chapter. There will be crafts, flea market, delicious food, and entertainment by "Large Flowerheads" and Hodge Podge DJ, to name a few. New this year will be our 1st Duck Race held by the Lehigh Township Fire Company. It will be held at the Bertsch Creek alongside the drive in's exit road.

On Friday and Saturday, October 3rd and 4th, and Columbus Day weekend, October 10th through 12th will be our 2nd Annual Trunk or Treat. We are looking forward to seeing all the neat decorations of all the different trunks attending the drive in the nights of the trunk or treat event for 2014. Each child dressed in costume for our Trunk or Treat nights will receive one coupon for a free special Halloween popcorn tub.

On Columbus Day weekend, we will be showing a triple feature on both screens. One screen will have 3 adult Halloween movies and the other screen will have 3 children's Halloween movies. You can vote for your favorite Halloween movies on our website. Maybe your favorite movies will be shown the weekend of October 10th through 12th.

Congratulations go out to: Jennifer Burgos, who was the 77th email with last week's trivia contest. Jennifer's favorite Halloween movies are: "It's a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", "Friday the 13th", and "Halloween". Jennifer, please email your mailing address so I can get two passes out to you in the mail to use sometime in the future at Becky's.

This week's trivia question will be: How many years have you been attending movies at Becky's? It's neither right nor wrong. The 68th answer will win two passes to use sometime at Becky's in the near future. Good luck! Remember, only one email per household.

See you under the stars at Becky's!

Movies are more fun at Becky's!
