The Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre will host the Movies and Bands: Drive-In Edition at Al Bishop Park in Marietta.

All performances will start at 7 p.m. and movies will begin at 8 p.m.

The event kicks off Friday with a showing of “Dirty Dancing” and a performance by The Neon Queen, an alternative Abba band; and on Saturday, a showing of “The Five Heartbeats” with a performance by The Soul Knights, a Motown and Philly Revue act.

In October, the series culminates with a showing of “Rocketman” on Oct. 16, with a performance by Beyond the Yellow Brick Road Atlanta’s Tribute to Elton John and a showing of “Drumline” with a performance by Xclusive Percussion on Oct. 17. This drumline entertainment company has members who are a part of Drumline Live, the Braves drumline and were in the movie “Drumline 2.”

Tickets are $50 per vehicle. Each vehicle will be assigned two parking spaces — one for the vehicle, the other to keep social distance.

Patrons are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, pillows or anything that makes them comfortable within the confines of their assigned spaces. If patrons prefer not to sit outside, they can remain in their vehicles and tune in to the movie and performance feed broadcast through their car radios.
