CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — The City of Central Point is preparing to begin drive-in movies at the Jackson County Expo, according to a statement from city officials on Tuesday. The "Rogue Drive-In" begins on Friday, June 5.

"This drive-in movie partnership was created to bring the joy of summer movies in the park and the nostalgia of drive-in movies to one fantastic event," the City said. "With our ever changing world, we as a community would like to bring a sense of normalcy to an already confusing time."

The project represents a partnership between the City of Central Point and the Expo, which were looking to create fun, family-friendly events for the local community.

Medford started a similar drive-in movie offering this month, debuting with The Sandlot on May 15.

Movies begin on June 5 and will be showing every Friday and Saturday night through the rest of the month, with new movies each week. Tickets go on sale Monday, June 1, at $5 per person, and the showings will be limited to 50 vehicles per night. Tickets must be bought in advance at the Expo website.

The first two movies will be Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) and Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.

Central Point included a list of guidelines necessary for the drive-in movies to be compliant with state restrictions:

  • Guests must remain in vehicles at all times except to visit the designated restroom(s). Guests are encouraged to wear face covering when using the restroom.
  • Guests must at all times remain a distance of at least 6 feet from guests from other households.
  • One person will be permitted in a restroom at a time, except one adult may accompany children.
