It’s may be a jungle out there, but inside the gates of Heathen Estate, 9400 N.E. 134th St., Vancouver, it will be all fun and games from 7:30 to 11 p.m. Friday. This local vineyard and winery — sister to Heathen Brewing and Heathen Feral Public House — is hosting a drive-in movie evening featuring “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (PG-13).
The movie starts at 9 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m., but come early to purchase food, cold craft beer, wine or soda. Admission is $20 per car, plus a $20 parking fee ($40 total), plus the cost of food and drinks.
Popcorn will be available to buy and Fry Hard, a mobile food truck based out of Newberg, Ore., will be on-site selling buckets of French fries, nacho fries, candy, soft drinks and fried hot dogs.
The sound will be broadcast to your FM radio and the movie will be shown on a giant screen so that everyone can see it from the comfort of their vehicles. There is room enough for 100 cars on the estate, with space for large trucks towards the back.
In accordance with Clark County Public Health COVID-19 safety guidelines, blankets are not allowed on the grass and everyone must stay in their vehicles unless visiting the restrooms or the concession stand. Masks are required any time you leave your vehicle. Heathen ushers will make sure that attendees are drinking responsibly. Just in case anyone’s car battery runs out of juice, Stevens Automotive will be there to charge them up for free.
