Grand Opening Miami-Dade County What’s New?

“Blue Starlite By The Bay” at Kennedy Park in the Coconut Grove

"Blue Starlite By The Bay" at Kennedy Park in the Coconut GroveWednesday, September 9, 6:45pm – Blue Starlite at Kennedy Park, 2476 South Bayshore Dr, Coconut Grove

Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In is setting up its big screen at a new venue, and one with plenty of outdoor intrigue. Situated in the Coconut Grove area, the drive-in’s “Blue Starlite By The Bay” welcomes movie fans to enjoy films on Bayshore Drive in between Miami’s striking Kennedy and Peacock Parks, and for the very first time on the weekends. Blue’s new home is the perfect place for patrons to relax and get their outdoor film fix on while breathing in fresh, waterfront air and reveling in the natural beauty of the surrounding parks.

“Blue Starlite By The Bay” is a collaboration made possible by The City of Miami Parks and Recreation with the help of the Commissioner of Miami, Marc Sarnoff. Blue’s new entertainment escape sits just a few blocks down from Scotty’s Landing and Monty’s Raw Bar and Restaurant—two of Miami’s most well known places for drinks and eats on the water. The car park at this location can host up to 30 vehicles a night, featuring a grassy area near the front of the screen for bikers and walk-in guests. Patrons who wish to secure their space early can do so and enjoy an outing in the park, time on the playground or a walk along the bay before settling into their cars for an evening of film screening fun.

Throughout the first month of fall, Blue Starlite will screen a mix of romance and adventure-packed family films—such as Princess Bride, The Goonies, Grease (the sing along), Alice In Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and Jaws. In the spirit of Blue Starlite’s cinematic experimentation, the Blue will offer alternative rock’n roll listening options for The Wizard of Oz and Alice In Wonderland with its popular late night Psychedelic Cinema Series. Film lovers can opt to enjoy Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon album with The Wizard of Oz or choose to listen to the The Wall soundtrack as they view Alice In Wonderland.

As September comes to a close and Halloween season approaches, Blue Starlite will gear up for its biggest month of the year: October. Gates open at 6:45pm for all 7:45pm films and at 9:30pm for all 10:15pm showtimes. @TheBlueStarlite @UrbanDrivein @CoconutGroveBID @CocoWalkMiami @CGroveChamber
