The drive-in movie, for the most part, is a thing of the past, but a Marble Falls business has renewed the concept — with a twist.

Jolly Rodgers Paddle Co. of Marble Falls hosts a free, family-friendly outdoor movie the third Saturday of each month at Backbone Creek in Johnson Park, 230 Avenue J South.

The next Dive-In Movie Nite on May 18 features the 1994 film “The Little Rascals” starring Brittany Aston Holmes, Bug Hall, and Travis Tedford.

You can bring blankets, food, and beverages.

“We wanted to offer something to the community,” said Jolly Rodgers owner David Rodgers. “We have such a cool area. Our business revolves around being outdoors and being outside. We want to offer it to the community.”

The paddle company at 120 S. Main St., which rents kayaks and paddleboards, hosted a similar dive-in movie two years ago. In March, it screened “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark” followed by “Harry and the Hendersons” in April.

Rodgers said people told him and his crew how much they enjoyed the event, which encouraged them to keep doing it.

He said Jolly Rodgers is looking for sponsors for Dive-In Movie Nite. Email him at david@jollyrodgerstx.com or go to jollyrodgerstx.com for more information.
