It was such a success last year that Warren’s the Collaborative nonprofit arts organization decided to do it again: drive-in movies all summer long. The season kicked off last Friday evening in the back lot of the Cutler Mills at 30 Cutler St. in Warren with a screening of the original summer blockbuster Jaws, and it will continue every Friday evening. This summer’s movie lineup at the Collaborative includes films like the cult-classic The Big Lebowski, The Wiz, Beetlejuice, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the horror film The Babadook and Marvel’s Black Panther.

Grab takeout from one of Warren’s many restaurants, use an FM radio to tune into sound and kick back like it’s the 1950s all over again. Tickets are $15 per vehicle and must be purchased in advance. Arrive at 7:30 p.m. to claim a spot in the lot and wait for sunset for the movie to begin.

“The lineup is fun and entertaining and really has something for everyone,” says Uriah Donnelly, executive director and founder of the Collaborative. “But most importantly, there are films that represent different voices and that celebrate diverse perspectives.”

On July 16, The Collaborative will also host a special local film night curated by Guy Benoit, a Rhode Island screenwriter and filmmaker, which includes a special screening of Knock It Off, a documentary about Frog and Toad’s efforts to support local businesses during the pandemic.
