The drive-thru film series, unveiled last year amid otherwise virtual offerings, was a hit at the 2020 festival. It returns to Morven Farm in Albemarle County with screenings of “The French Dispatch” and a Halloween nighttime presentation of “The Addams Family”.
“It’s a magical experience at Morven Farm,” Kielbasa said, marveling at the memory of the drone footage that captured the picturesque views of the site. “We’re happy to provide this again, and it’s a good alternative for people who don’t think they’re quite ready to go back” to in-person screenings during the pandemic.
