Drive-In: SUPER 8

The Strand is proud to announce a new Drive-In Movie series! The shows will take place at the OWLS HEAD TRANSPORTATION MUSEUM (117 Museum St., Owls Head) on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights throughout July.

SUPER 8 is a 2011 sci-fi thriller from Steven Spielberg, set in the summer of 1979. A group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth - something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
