Miceli Productions supports the local Southington, CT drive-in movie theater, with ticket sales supporting local non-profit and civic organizations.
The Southington Drive-In is a great community activity the town of Southington offers that is truly unique. Re-opened as a town-owned and volunteer-operated drive-in theater in 2010, the Southington Drive-In has been bringing the wonders of the silver screen to viewers of all ages throughout the summer months – and we at Miceli Productions love to be a part of this amazing past time.
The Drive-In really allows us at Miceli Productions to give back to the Southington community and to invoke community spirit. While we put together the commercial reels before the films, this year we also created our own commercial to play during the pre-show entertainment reel. It was a typography-based visual project that gives our location within Southington, CT, but also invites viewers to get to know us as a company and as community supporters.
We are also excited to announce that the Southington Drive-In will be having a Halloween double-feature festival coming up this Saturday! Though the usual run of the Drive-In is every Saturday during the summer months, a Halloween festival had been started four years ago that is hosted by the Drive-In. Beginning at 2 P.M., the festival includes hayrides, faceprinting, and other fun activities until the two films play at night – Hocus Pocus and The Shining.
Come down and have a fun night at the movies with the Southington Drive-In to start off your Halloween celebrations!
