For the first time in a long time, we'll see you at the movies!

Here's the (updated) movie lineup for The Milky Way Drive-In's opening week

It's lights, camera and (responsibly social-distanced) action for The Milky Way Drive-In this weekend.

A big screen drive-in experience finally within Brew City's borders, The Milky Way will roll film on its inaugural summer season on Friday, May 22, at the Ballpark Commons in Franklin, with the animated adventure "Abominable" and the action blockbuster "Hobbs & Shaw" as the first two options, plus a rotation of more than a dozen movies – from family favorites to recent explosive action films and even some edgier material for late-night adult crowds – over the following week and beyond.

Tickets can be purchased at the drive-in's website, while at The Milky Way itself, you can buy food, snacks, drinks and more from either the ballpark's concessions stands or from partner food trucks via app and delivered by a carhop. And as for hearing your movie, The Milky Way offers outdoor speakers, FM radio frequency or the Listen Everywhere app.

"If you've ever been to a drive-in, you're going to appreciate the Milky Way as the real thing," said Mike Zimmerman, CEO of ROC Ventures, developer of the Ballpark Commons mixed-use development and owner of the Milwaukee Milkmen, in a release. "The Milky Way Drive-In offers a terrific food-and-entertainment 'night out' experience in a safe environment."

Found at 7035 S. Ballpark Drive, the Milky Way Drive-In plans to show movies every day through Labor Day. For more information on tickets, coronavirus precautions and more, visit the drive-in's website. And for the first time in a long time, we'll see you at the movies!
