“I think students should come see a movie because it is fun and you get to spend time out with your friends and family, watch a movie together and create wonderful memories even during tough times,” he said.
All drive-in presentations are COVID-safe, people can stay in their cars or tailgate as long as they stay within the appropriately distanced zones, he said.
Tamara Villescas a UNM student said she comes to watch movies here frequently. “I come here every time with my girls, it gives me a reason to leave the house, also I love food trucks”.
