Mandan Progress Organization continues the “Carpool Cinema” this summer | New

The Mandan Progress Organization continues Carpool Cinema events this summer, following a successful inaugural season last year.

The films are shown on a large LED screen in a parking lot, and people who buy tickets can park in their vehicles to watch them. They can also order catering services at certain shows.

“Carpool Cinema was created in response to COVID-19 as a safe way to get together for a fun event,” said Kristi Kraft, MPO’s vice chair of the board. “It was so popular that we decided to continue.”

The three Carpool cinemas that took place last summer had a combined attendance of 500 vehicles, with an average of around five people per vehicle, according to MPO executive director Dot Frank.

This year’s debut movie is “American Graffiti” on Saturday June 5th at the Mandan Brave Center parking lot at 901 Division St. NW.

“We picked this classic coming-of-age car show to get people excited about Buggies-N-Blues,” Kraft said. “You can watch the movie on June 5th, then see the cars and (disc jockey) Wolfman Jack at Buggies-N-Blues the following weekend.

Buggies-N-Blues features a car show, parade, live music, food, and other entertainment. The 27th annual event last year was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year’s show will take place June 12-13.
